Tehillim Two: Emotions

“Arm yourselves with purity lest He become angry and you perish in the way, for in a moment His wrath will be kindled; the praises of all who take refuge in Him (Psalms 2:12).” The version of God described in this verse is a volatile one, able to be triggered to anger at any point if a person makes the wrong move. It’s weird to think of God that way. Simultaneously, He is supposed to be all-knowing and all-seeing, and yet He’s almost like an adolescent in terms of quick emotions. I guess it shows why our own emotions are so ever-changing – we are made in God’s image, so maybe this is something we share as well.
