Why was God angry at Israel?

God was angry at Old Covenant Israel because they could not keep the law of Moses. This means God did not love those non elect disobedient Israelites. It meant that God would have to make a New Covenant and sacrifice His son. That was the source of His anger toward Israel. He will keep anger at least until the plan of redemption is fulfilled.

Will He end the anger at the end of the process of redemption? Scripture may not say. I have not found it.

However, I believe God created his own anger because of Christ's suffering and for deepening the understanding of the elect remnant of ancient Hebrews and now  the few elect Christians saved by the gospel. Believe in Jesus Christ.

See Hebrews chapter 11 where we see see that the Old Covenant saints realized by divine revelation that the Old Covenant of salvation by works was not going to save those who looked to the law of Moses for their salvation. The non elect Israelis strayed.

The remnant saved in the Old Covenant looked for a heavenly country, a perfect covenant, the New Covenant!
