furious, fury

The Greek and Hebrew that is translated as “fury” or “furious” or similar in English is translated in Low German with the alliteration and idiom Gift un Gall speeten or “spit poison and bile” (translation by Johannes Jessen, publ. 1937, republ. 2006).

Fittingly, it is also used in Acts 14:2 to translate the Greek (ἐκάκωσαν τὰς ψυχὰς) that is translated as “poison the mind” in English.

See also very angry and in anger.
