Displeased

Additional Links
1: ἀγανακτέω

(Strong's #23 — Verb — aganakteo — ag-an-ak-teh'-o )

from agan, "much," and achomai, "to grieve," primarily meant "to feel a violent irritation, physically;" it was used, too, of the fermenting of wine; hence, metaphorically, "to show signs of grief, to be displeased, to be grieved, vexed;" it is translated "sore displeased" in Matthew 21:15 , AV; "much displeased," in Mark 10:14; the RV always renders it "to be moved with, or to have indignation," as the AV elsewhere, Matthew 20:24; 26:8; Mark 14:4; Luke 13:14 . See INDIGNATION.

2: προσοχθίζω

(Strong's #4360 — Verb — prosochthizo — pros-okh-thid'-zo )

"to be wroth or displeased with" (pros, "toward," or "with," ochtheo, "to be sorely vexed"), is used in Hebrews 3:10,17 (AV, "grieved;" RV, "displeased"). "Grieved" does not adequately express the righteous anger of God intimated in the passage. See GRIEVE.

3: θυμομαχέω

(Strong's #2371 — Verb — thumomacheo — thoo-mom-akh-eh'-o )

lit., "to fight with great animosity" (thumos, "passion," machomai, "to fight"), hence, "to be very angry, to be highly displeased," is said of Herod's "displeasure" with the Tyrians and Sidonians, Acts 12:20 .
