Webster's 1913 Dictionary
  1. \An"ger\, n. [OE. anger, angre, affliction, anger, fr.
    Icel. angr affliction, sorrow; akin to Dan. anger regret,
    Swed. [*a]nger regret, AS. ange oppressed, sad, L. angor a
    strangling, anguish, angere to strangle, Gr. ? to strangle,
    Skr. amhas pain, and to. anguish, anxious, quinsy, and perh.
    awe, ugly. The word seems to have orig. meant to choke,
    squeeze. ?.]
    1. Trouble; vexation; also, physical pain or smart of a sore,
       etc. [Obs.]
             I made the experiment, setting the moxa where . . .
             the greatest anger and soreness still continued.
    2. A strong passion or emotion of displeasure or antagonism,
       excited by a real or supposed injury or insult to one's
       self or others, or by the intent to do such injury.
             Anger is like A full hot horse, who being allowed
             his way, Self-mettle tires him.       --Shak.
    Syn: Resentment; wrath; rage; fury; passion; ire gall;
         choler; indignation; displeasure; vexation; grudge;
    Usage: {Anger}, {Indignation}, {Resentment}, {Wrath}, {Ire},
           {Rage}, {Fury}. Anger is a feeling of keen displeasure
           (usually with a desire to punish) for what we regard
           as wrong toward ourselves or others. It may be
           excessive or misplaced, but is not necessarily
           criminal. Indignation is a generous outburst of anger
           in view of things which are indigna, or unworthy to be
           done, involving what is mean, cruel, flagitious, etc.,
           in character or conduct. Resentment is often a moody
           feeling, leading one to brood over his supposed
           personal wrongs with a deep and lasting anger. See
           {Resentment}. Wrath and ire (the last poetical)
           express the feelings of one who is bitterly provoked.
           Rage is a vehement ebullition of anger; and fury is an
           excess of rage, amounting almost to madness. Warmth of
           constitution often gives rise to anger; a high sense
           of honor creates indignation at crime; a man of quick
           sensibilities is apt to cherish resentment; the wrath
           and ire of men are often connected with a haughty and
           vindictive spirit; rage and fury are distempers of the
           soul to be regarded only with abhorrence.
  2. \An"ger\, v. t. [imp. & p. p. {Angered}; p. pr. & vb. n.
    {Angering}.] [Cf. Icel. angra.]
    1. To make painful; to cause to smart; to inflame. [Obs.]
             He . . . angereth malign ulcers.      --Bacon.
    2. To excite to anger; to enrage; to provoke.
             Taxes and impositions . . . which rather angered
             than grieved the people.              --Clarendon.
Dream Dictionary
 Definition: Dreaming of anger may be the only way for you to express your frustrations and negative feelings. It is very safe way for your mind to cope with stressful, unpleasant situations. It might also be the rehearsal of some real anger you are experiencing in your life, and dreaming about it may reinforce the feeling or may show you that there are other ways to deal with the problem.
Easton Bible Dictionary

the emotion of instant displeasure on account of something evil that presents itself to our view. In itself it is an original susceptibility of our nature, just as love is, and is not necessarily sinful. It may, however, become sinful when causeless, or excessive, or protracted (Matt. 5:22; Eph. 4:26; Col. 3:8). As ascribed to God, it merely denotes his displeasure with sin and with sinners (Ps. 7:11).
