TO BE WROTH, ANGRY
qatsap OT:7107, "to be wroth, angry." This verb appears 34 times and is found mainly in the Pentateuch and in the prophets, and a few times in the historical books and the poetic literature. The word is used in rabbinic Hebrew, but its use in modern Hebrew has been displaced by other verbs. It is an ancient Canaanite word; as a gloss it appeared in the Amarna Tablets with the meaning "to become worried," or according to others, "to be embittered." The relation with the Arabic cognate qasafa is doubtful.
The general meaning of qatsap is a strong emotional outburst of anger, especially when man is the subject of the reaction. The first usage of the word brings this out: "And Pharaoh was wroth against two of his officers... and he put them in [custody]..." Gen 40:2-3; cf. 41:10. Moses became bitterly angry with the disobedient Israelites Ex 16:20. The leaders of the Philistines "were wroth" with Achish 1 Sam 29:4, and Naaman was strongly irritated by Elisha's lack of a sense of protocol 2 Kings 5:11. Elisha expressed his anger with Joash, king of Israel 2 Kings 13:19. King Ahasuerus deposed Vashti in his anger Est 1:12. In these examples an exalted person (generally a king) demonstrated his royal anger in radical measures against his subjects. He was in a position "to be angered" by the response of his subjects. It is rarer for a person "to become angry" with an equal. It is even rarer for a subject "to be angry" with his superior: "...two of the king's chamberlains... were wroth, and sought to lay hand on the king Ahasuerus" Est 2:21.
The noun derived from qatsap particularly refers to God's anger. The verb qatsap is used 11 times to describe man's anger and 18 times to refer to God's anger. This fact, coupled with the observation that the verb generally is an expression of a superior against a subject, explains why the biblical text more frequently uses qatsap to describe God's anger. The object of the anger is often indicated by the preposition `al ("against"). "For I was afraid of the anger [`ap] and hot displeasure [chemah], wherewith the Lord was wroth [qatsap] against ['al] you to destroy you" Deut 9:19. The Lord's anger expresses itself against disobedience Lev 10:6 and sin Eccl 5:5 ff.. However, people themselves can be the cause for God's anger Ps 106:32. In the wilderness the Israelites provoked God to wrath by their disobedience and lack of faith: "Remember, and forget not, how thou provokedst the Lord thy God to wrath in the wilderness: from the day that thou didst depart out of the land of Egypt, until ye came unto this place, ye have been rebellious against the Lord" Deut 9:7; cf. vv. 8,22. Moses spoke about God's wrath against Israel's disobedience which would in time be the occasion for the Exile Deut 29:27, and the prophets amplify Moses' warning of God's coming "wrath" Jer 21:5. After the Exile, God had compassion on Israel and turned His anger against Israel's enemies Isa 34:2.

Zech 7:12-13 AMP Yes, they made their hearts as an adamant stone or diamond point, lest they should hear the law and the words which the Lord of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets.

Zech 8:13-17 AMP And as you have been a curse and a byword among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so will I save you, and you shall be a blessing.

Luke 21:20-28 AMP But when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then know and understand that its desolation has come near. 21 Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, and let those who are inside [the city] get out of it, and let not those who are out in the country come into it; 22 For those are days of vengeance [of rendering full justice or satisfaction], that all things that are written may be fulfilled.
23 Alas for those who are pregnant and for those who have babies which they are nursing in those days! For great misery and anguish and distress shall be upon the land and indignation and punishment and retribution upon this people. 24 They will fall by the mouth and the edge of the sword and will be led away as captives to and among all nations; and Jerusalem will be trodden down by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled (completed). [Isa 63:18; Dan 8:13.]
25 And there will be signs in the sun and moon and stars; and upon the earth [there will be] distress (trouble and anguish) of nations in bewilderment and perplexity [without resources, left wanting, embarrassed, in doubt, not knowing which way to turn] at the roaring ( the echo) of the tossing of the sea, [Isa 13:10; Joel 2:10; Zeph 1:15.]
26 Men swooning away or expiring with fear and dread and apprehension and expectation of the things that are coming on the world; for the [very] powers of the heavens will be shaken and caused to totter.
27 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with great (transcendent and overwhelming) power and [all His kingly] glory (majesty and splendor).

John 3:36 AMP And he who believes in (has faith in, clings to, relies on) the Son has (now possesses) eternal life.

[God's displeasure remains on him; His indignation hangs over him continually.] [Hab 2:4.]
Rom 1:18-19 AMP For God's [holy] wrath and indignation are revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who in their wickedness repress and hinder the truth and make it inoperative. 19 For that which is known about God is evident to them and made plain in their inner consciousness, because God [Himself] has shown it to them.
Rom 2:5-15 AMP But by your callous stubbornness and impenitence of heart you are storing up wrath and indignation for yourself on the day of wrath and indignation, when God's righteous judgment (just doom) will be revealed. 6 For He will render to every man according to his works [justly, as his deeds deserve]: [Ps 62:12.] 7 To those who by patient persistence in well-doing [springing from piety] seek [unseen but sure] glory and honor and [the eternal blessedness of] immortality, He will give eternal life.

10 But glory and honor and [heart] peace shall be awarded to everyone who [habitually] does good, the Jew first and also the Greek (Gentile). 11 For God shows no partiality [undue favor or unfairness; with Him one man is not different from another]. [Deut 10:17; 2 Chron 19:7.] 12 All who have sinned without the Law will also perish without [regard to] the Law, and all who have sinned under the Law will be judged and condemned by the Law. 13 For it is not merely hearing the Law [read] that makes one righteous before God, but it is the doers of the Law who will be held guiltless and acquitted and justified.
14 When Gentiles who have not the [divine] Law do instinctively what the Law requires, they are a law to themselves, since they do not have the Law.
15 They show that the essential requirements of the Law are written in their hearts and are operating there, with which their consciences (sense of right and wrong) also bear witness; and their [moral] decisions (their arguments of reason, their condemning or approving thoughts) will accuse or perhaps defend and excuse [them]
Rom 4:15-16 AMP For the Law results in [divine] wrath, but where there is no law there is no transgression [of it either]. 16 Therefore, [inheriting] the promise is the outcome of faith and depends [entirely] on faith, in order that it might be given as an act of grace (unmerited favor), to make it stable and valid and guaranteed to all his descendants--not only to the devotees and adherents of the Law, but also to those who share the faith of Abraham, who is [thus] the father of us all.
Rom 5:9 AMP Therefore, since we are now justified ( acquitted, made righteous, and brought into right relationship with God) by Christ's blood, how much more [certain is it that] we shall be saved by Him from the indignation and wrath of God.
Rom 9:22-23 AMP What if God, although fully intending to show [the awfulness of] His wrath and to make known His power and authority, has tolerated with much patience the vessels (objects) of [His] anger which are ripe for destruction? [Prov 16:4.] 23 And [what if] He thus purposes to make known and show the wealth of His glory in [dealing with] the vessels (objects) of His mercy which He has prepared beforehand for glory,

Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says: "Today, if you will hear His voice, 8 Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion, In the day of trial in the wilderness, 9 Where your fathers tested Me, tried Me, and saw My works forty years. 10 Therefore I was angry with that generation, and said, 'They always go astray in their heart, and they have not known My ways.' 11 So I swore in My wrath, 'They shall not enter My rest.'" 12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; 13 but exhort one another daily, while it is called "Today," lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. 14 For we have become partakers of Christ if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast to the end, 15 while it is said: "Today, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion."
