He loved us so very much he killed everyone but Moses and his family. Along with billions of animals.<quoted text>He said it. Ask Him. If you had a brother and your parents said he is their son and you are not when all you ever did was to love them and do good for them would that make you feel bad? If they constantly praised other people's children but never even acknowledge you, would you feel jealous? We are His creation, we belong to Him. When we go whoring after other "gods" He is deservingly jealous of our love for Him. He wants us to love Him as He loves us. Not as the person who hates his neighbor because he is jealous of his new car. That is covetousness..
Such good parenting.
