Scriptures on the Wrath of God and of Man

Bible verses about anger can be a touchy subject. No pun intended. LOL

It is a difficult subject to deal with because on one hand, anger is a normal and even healthy reaction to certain events, yet on the other hand, uncontrolled or long-lasting anger can be a very negative and damaging emotion. It can be expressed in many ways including violently, silently, or with crying which is most typical with women.

It is my prayer that as you read these scriptures on anger that you will get a better understanding on this subject and if you are dealing with negative anger or on the receiving end of that type of anger that you will find the help you are seeking through these verses.

Scriptures About The Anger Of God

Exodus 34:6

Jeremiah 10:10

Final Thoughts About Anger

As you can see, there are times when anger is justified, but we must still be careful and not allow that anger to control us or dictate our actions.

God expresses just anger when God’s people turned against him and followed after other God. Jesus expressed anger at injustice.

However, in both cases, forgiveness was readily available and would soothe the anger.

That is the way we are to be as well. If we get angry we need to be the type of people that will readily forgive and lay down the anger that we feel. We should not continue in our anger and let the sun set while we are still angry.
