שמות לג:יד. Rashi explains the verse that says G-d is a Jealous G-d. My understanding of how Rashi explains: the root of the word Jealousy means is "my way goes, and every other way suffers". וְזֶהוּ כָּל לְשׁוֹן קִנְאָה – אוֹחֵז בְּנִצְחוֹנוֹ וּפוֹרֵעַ מֵאוֹיְבָיו: See Rashi Here
How does this relate to the term Jealousy that is used to describe getting back at someone for wronging you? All thoughts welcome, please?
Another question: why is G-d a Jealous G-d. As long as we keep the commandments why does G-d care about himself that he and only he be served? If I am the owner of a business I don't really care to be recognized that the employees are working for me, I just want the job done. I also don't care if they have other jobs as long as they also get my job done? What is this obsession in the Torah about idol worship? All thoughts Welcome plz!
( Although one could say true, G-d would be fine if we kept the commandments, and the Jealousy means when we start doing what the other G-ds want and not G-ds commandments, the fact the Torah stresses many times that G-d is a Jealous G-d seems to me there is something wrong with serving another G-d even if you are serving Hashem as well and doing all his commandments)
