Certainly 1 your angry judgment upon men will bring you praise; 2 you reveal your anger in full measure. 3
Their venom is like that of a snake, 1 like a deaf serpent 2 that does not hear, 3
Their wine is snakes’ poison, the deadly venom of cobras.
Let his own eyes see his destruction; 1 let him drink of the anger of the Almighty.
Yes, 1 we are consumed by your anger; we are terrified by your wrath.
Then my anger will be fully vented; I will exhaust my rage on them, and I will be appeased. 1 Then they will know that I, the Lord, have spoken in my jealousy 2 when I have fully vented my rage against them.
You will be 1 an object of scorn and taunting, 2 a prime example of destruction 3 among the nations around you when I execute judgments against you in anger and raging fury. 4 I, the Lord, have spoken!
“‘Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: In my rage I will make a violent wind break out. In my anger there will be a deluge of rain and hailstones in destructive fury.
Do not be angry and frustrated! 1 Do not fret! That only leads to trouble!
Your anger bears down on me, and you overwhelm me with all your waves. (Selah)
for jealousy kindles 1 a husband’s 2 rage, and he will not show mercy 3 when he takes revenge.
A gentle response 1 turns away anger, but a harsh word 2 stirs up wrath. 3
A quick-tempered person 1 stirs up dissension, but one who is slow to anger 2 calms 3 a quarrel. 4
A king’s wrath 1 is like 2 a messenger of death, 3 but a wise person appeases it. 4
A gift given 1 in secret subdues 2 anger, and a bribe given secretly 3 subdues 4 strong wrath. 5
Wrath is cruel and anger is overwhelming, 1 but who can stand before jealousy? 2
An angry person 1 stirs up dissension, and a wrathful person 2 is abounding in transgression. 3
I trampled nations in my anger, I made them drunk 1 in my rage, I splashed their blood on the ground.” 2
Live with him for a little while 1 until your brother’s rage subsides.
I will walk in hostile rage against you 1 and I myself will also discipline you seven times on account of your sins.
