27 Is God’s anger forever, sort of

Jeremiah vs Psalm

Jeremiah the prophet says:
That God’s anger burns forever

 Hold on!

Psalm 103 says:
That God’s anger is only temporary

In the Old Testament, Jeremiah gives a lecture, saying God’s anger goes on forever

Jeremiah 17:4 Through your own fault you [Judea] will lose the inheritance I gave you. I will enslave you to your enemies in a land you do not know, for you have kindled my anger, and it will burn forever.

However, the Old Testament Psalm 103 says God doesn’t harbor his anger forever

Psalm 103:7 The LORD is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love. 8 He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever.

Recap: God is angry forever, but it isn't really that way ... um. Thus Jeremiah vs Psalm.
