Introduction

The different angers of God may be related to His different attributes: righteousness, jealously, holiness, etc.

Old Testament

In the Old Testament, we read about anger as present emotion of people and God. The Hebrew words help us understand anger. God distinguished various kinds of anger in the Old Testament.

Burning Anger חֲמָתֶ֑

The Burning Anger of Yahweh targets believers, unbelievers, and the nation of Israel.

Psalm 88:7. Heman the Ezrahite described Yahweh’s burning anger (“חֲמָתֶ֑ךָ–your burning anger”) as rested (“סָמְכָ֣ה”) upon him. He likened it to waves (“מִ֝שְׁבָּרֶ֗יךָ “) of affliction (“עִנִּ֥יתָ”). Therefore, this type of anger comes in waves and holds a person down under Yahweh’s burning anger in successive waves.

Psalm 89:46David described Yahweh as hiding His face and asked if Yahweh’s burning anger (“חֲמָתֶֽךָ”–your burning anger) would burn like fire forever? Therefore, this type of anger has a sustained quality of burning like fire (“אֵ֣שׁ”).

Jeremiah 4:4. God warned that His burning anger (“חֲמָתִ֗י”–my burning anger) may go forth like fire (“כָאֵ֜שׁ”) and burn with none to quench it. Evil deeds caused His burning anger to go forth upon the people of Judah and Jerusalem.

Lamentations 4:11. Yahweh finished his burning anger (“חֲמָתֹ“), He poured out His bursting anger (“חֲרֹ֣ון”) and He has kindled a fire in Zion which has consumed its foundations. The burning anger (“חֲמָתֹ“)  of Yahweh has an enduring quality, while the bursting anger (“חֲרֹ֣ון”) emphasized the sudden flash of anger.

2 Chronicles 12:7. When the people of Jerusalem humbled themselves, Yahweh said: My burning anger (“חֲמָתִ֛י“) shall not be poured (“לֹא־תִתַּ֧ךְ“) out upon Jerusalem by Shishak. 

2 Chronicles 34:21. The great burning anger (“גְדֹולָ֤ה חֲמַת־יְהוָה֙“)  of Yahweh was poured out upon Israel and Judah because their fathers did not  observe the word of Yahweh.  

2 Chronicles 34:25. Because the people have forsaken Yahweh and have burned incense to other gods, that they might provoke Me to anger (“הַכְעִיסֵ֔נִי”) with all the works of their hands; therefore My burning anger (“חֲמָתִ֛י”) will be poured out on this place and it shall not be quenched (“תִכְבֶּֽה”).

Therefore, we see the connection between the bursting anger of Yahweh and the nose-anger of Yahweh, indicating a burst of intense anger in a moment pouring forth when provoked.

Indignation  (“זֹעֵ֥ם“)

Psalm 7:11. God is a righteous judge, and a God who has indignation (“זֹעֵ֥ם“) every day (“בְּכָל־יֹֽום”). 

Isaiah 10:25. Regarding the people dwelling in Zion, Yahweh Elohim of Sabaoth told them not to fear the Assyrians, for in a little while My indignation (“זַ֔עַם“) will be finished (“כָ֣לָה”) and My nose-anger (“וְאַפִּ֖י“) to their destruction. The indignation of God passes, but gives place to the burning anger of God which will destroy the Assyrians. Therefore, we see the term “indignation” has a shorter duration with less ferocity than burning anger which destroys utterly.

Isaiah 26:20. Yahweh orders His people to enter into their rooms and close their doors behind them. Hide for a little while until had passed through (“עַד־יַעֲבֹור”) indignation (“זָֽעַם”).

Ezekiel 22:20-24. Ezekiel prophesied that Yahweh will gather His people into Jerusalem to blow upon them, so that in My nose-anger (“בְּאַפִּ֣י”) and in my burning anger (“וּבַחֲמָתִ֔י”) I will lay you here and melt you. Then they will know that I have poured out (“שָׁפַ֥כְתִּי”) My burning anger (“חֲמָתִ֖י”) on you.  God will blow on them with the fire of My burning anger (“חֲמָתִ֖י“). Israel is a land not cleansed or rained on in the day of indignation (“זָֽעַם”).

Daniel 11:36. The evil king will do as he pleases, and he will exalt and magnify himself above every god and will speak monstrous things against the God of gods (“עַל֙ אֵ֣ל אֵלִ֔ים“); and he will prosper until the indignation (“זַ֔עַם”) is finished, for that which is decreed will be done.

Malachi 1:4. Edom may try to rebuild from its ruins, but Yahweh of Sabaoth promised that if Edom rebuilds, He will tear down. Men will call them the wicked territory, and the people whom Yahweh is indignant (“זָעַ֥ם”) until age (“עַד־עֹולָֽם“).

Jeremiah sat alone for Yahweh Elohim of Sabaoth filled him.

In the day of indignation, Israel will be melted and not cleansed or rained on.

The evil king will do as he pleases, speaking monstrous things against God, until indignation is finished, for that which is decreed will be done.

Edom will be called the people whom Yahweh is indignant until age.

Jealous Anger

Deuteronomy 32:21. Israel has made jealous Yahweh with not-El (“בְלֹא־אֵ֔ל”). They provoked Me to jealous anger (“כִּעֲס֖וּנִי”) with their Baals. So Yahweh will make them jealous with those who are not a people; Yahweh said: I will provoke them to jealous anger (“אַכְעִיסֵֽם”) with a foolish nation.

Psalm 85:4. Return us, O God of our salvation (“אֱלֹהֵ֣י יִשְׁעֵ֑נוּ“) and break you jealous anger (“כַּֽעַסְךָ֣”) toward us.

Ecclesiastes 5:16 וְכָעַ֥ס   וְכָעַ֥ס הַרְבֵּ֖ה וְחָלְיֹ֥ו וָקָֽצֶף׃ Man throughout his life also eats in darkness with great jealous anger, sickness and holy anger.

2 Chronicles 16:10.  Hanani the seer prophesied to King Asa that would have wars because he acted foolishly. Then Asa had jealous anger  (“וַיִּכְעַ֨ס”) with the seer and put him in prison, for he was enraged (“כִּֽי־בְזַ֥עַף”) with him for this.

New Testament

In the New Testament God deals with Jews and Gentiles. By grace through faith people believe in Jesus for salvation. God adopts them into the family of God and they become member of the Body of Christ. For those who reject such salvation, the wrath of God abides upon them.

Wrath ὀργὴ 

Wrath (“ὀργὴ”) only applies to God. 

Matthew 3:7. John the Baptist asked who warned many of the Pharisees and Sadducees to flee from the wrath to come (“ἀπὸ τῆς μελλούσης ὀργῆς”) (see also Luke 3:7 for the same construction). Fleeing in this case means repentance from sin and saving faith in Jesus Christ. Not all those baptized by John the Baptist had saving faith. John warned them to produce fruit in keeping with their repentance.

Luke 21:23. Woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days; for there will be great distress (“ἀνάγκη”) upon the land and wrath (“ὀργὴ”) to this people. Those people will fall by the sword and be led captive into all the nations.

John 3:36. The one who disobeys the Son shall not see life, but the wrath (“ὀργὴ”) of God abides upon him.

Romans 1:18. The wrath (“ὀργὴ”) of God is revealed from heaven against all unGodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness.

Romans 2:5. But because of your stubbornness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath (“ὀργὴν”) for yourself in the day of wrath (“ὀργῆς”) and revelation of the judgment of God.

Romans 2:8.  In the Day of Wrath, the self-seeking and those disobedient to the truth, but obey unrighteousness, wrath and indignation (ὀργὴ καὶ θυμός).

Romans 3:5. But if our unrighteousness demonstrates the righteousness of God, what shall we say? The God who inflicts the wrath (“τὴν ὀργήν”) is not unrighteous? (According to man I am speaking).

Romans 4:15. The Law brings about wrath (“ὀργὴν”). 

Romans 5:9. Having been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath (“τῆς ὀργῆς”).

Romans 9:22. Although God is willing to show the wrath (“τὴν ὀργὴν”) and to make known His power, he endured with much patience vessels of mercy prepared beforehand for glory.

Romans 12:19. Always give place to the wrath (“τῇ ὀργῇ”), for God said vengeance to Him, He will repay. 

Romans 13:4. The government is a minister of God, an avenger in wrath (“ὀργὴν”) to the one practicing evil.

Romans 13:5. Saints should live in subjection to the government, not only because of the wrath (“τὴν ὀργὴν”), but also for conscience’s sake.

Ephesians 2:3. Before we came to Christ for salvation, we were, by nature, children of wrath (“ὀργῆς”), as the rest.

Ephesians 4:31. Let all bitterness and anger (“θυμὸς”) and wrath (“ὀργὴ”) and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice.

Ephesians 5:6. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath (“ἡ ὀργὴ”) of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.

Colossians 3:6. Because of these things the wrath (“ἡ ὀργὴ “) of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.

Colossians 3:8. Saints must put aside all wrath (“ὀργήν”) , anger (“θυμόν”), malice, slander, abusive speech from your mouth. 

1 Thessalonians 1:10. Jesus rescues us out of the coming wrath (“τῆς ὀργῆς”).

1 Thessalonians 2:16. The Jews hindering believers fill up the measure of their sins and the wrath (” ἡ ὀργὴ”) has come upon them to the end.

1 Thessalonians 5:9. God has not destined saints to wrath (“ὀργὴν “), but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Timothy 2:8. Paul wanted men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands, without wrath (“ὀργῆς”) and dissension.

Hebrews 3:11. As I swore in my wrath (“ὀργὴ”), they shall not enter my rest. In Psalm 95:11, we read that Yahweh swore in “My nose-anger” ( בְאַפִּ֑י”) that the people of Israel would not enter His rest, except Joshua and Caleb (see also Numbers 14:23-30). Therefore, we have some indication that nose-anger would be the best translation of ὀργὴ in the New Testament.

Hebrews 4:3. Believers enter into the rest of God (Hebrews 4:3). In contrast, God swore in His nose-anger (“בְאַפִּ֑י”) that the generation who rejected Him would not enter His rest. Based upon the comparison of terms between Hebrews 4:3 and Psalm 95:11, the best translation may be nose-anger for both the New Testament and Old Testament word.

James 1:19. God wants everyone to be slow to anger (“ὀργὴν”).  Compare Exodus 34:6, nose anger.

James 1:20. God wants everyone to be slow to anger, because the anger (“ὀργὴ”) of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. Notice here the connection between anger and righteousness. 

Revelation 14:10. Anyone who worships the beast, or receives his mark, will drink of the wine of the wrath of God (”τοῦ θυμοῦ τοῦ θεοῦ”), which is mixed in full strength in he cup of His anger (“τῆς ὀργῆς αὐτοῦ”). 

Romans 10:19. Moses said that Yahweh will make Israel jealous by that which is not a nation, by a naiton wihtout understanding I will anger you (“παροργιῶ ὑμᾶς”). See Deuteronomy 32:21 אַכְעִיסֵֽם. Ezekiel 16:42 Yahweh likesn Israel to a harlot and He will give her into the hand s of her lovers; aftehy they have torn down you idolas and left her naked and barde, a crowd will stone you and cut you topieces iwht swords. and burn your houses with fire. .  I will calm my fury (“חֲמָתִי֙”) against you and My jealousy will depart from you, and I will be pacified and angry no more. Ezekiel 32:38 God will upon Israel the blood of wrath (“חֵמָ֖ה“) and jealousy (“”). 38וּשְׁפַטְתִּיךְ֙ מִשְׁפְּטֵ֣י נֹאֲפֹ֔ות וְשֹׁפְכֹ֖ת דָּ֑ם וּנְתַתִּ֕יךְ דַּ֥ם חֵמָ֖ה וְקִנְאָֽה
