For they made him angry by their high places
and made him jealous by their carved images. Bible

“made him angry.” The worship of false gods made God angry. Although many English versions use the word “provoke,” in everyday English the word “provoke” refers to intentionally acting to upset someone, and the Israelites did not worship idols to intentionally upset God, they did it because they were self-centered.
