wrath and anger

Psalm 2:12 says God can get wrathful in a moment, but we also know God is slow to anger. What do you make of this?

We also know that God is changeless. We also know that that does not constitute a contradiction. In other words, it means that this kind of language is anthropomorphic. It is the only way for humans to describe God, i.e. from a human perspective.
Let us proclaim the mystery of our faith: Christ has died, Christ is risen, Christ will come again.

Lord I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only say the word and my soul shall be healed.
