Does God get angry?

RE Verse reading–Exodus 3:1-14, 4:1-15 (day seven) 
“Then the Lord’s anger burned against Moses”--v 4:14.  Does the Lord get angry?  With us, I mean.  Are we in danger of this happening to us?  “Do not put the Lord to the test” is the way Moses verbalized this life-lesson years later. ( Deuteronomy 6:16, Matthew 4:7)  Yes, the Lord gets angry!  Like a parent with a child who resists His will, asking one question too many, resisting obedience one moment too long. That moment when further hesitation becomes defiance.  Peter felt Christ’s anger. “Get Thee behind me, Satan”Matthew 16:23.  The Pharisees too.  “He looked around at them with anger, grieved at their hardness of heart“–Mark 3:5. (Did they even notice? Not sure)  Be careful!  The Lord is patient with His people, but eventually anger rises toward hard, unwilling, hearts.  Explains where some are, even today. “To one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.”James 4:17.  Does God get angry?
