Fury (חֵמָא chema', or חָרוֹן charon', both signifying intense anger) is attributed to God like anger, metaphorically, or speaking after the manner of men;

that is, God's providentials actions are such as would be performed by a man in a state of anger; so that when he is said to pour out hin fury on a person or on a people, it is a figurativem expression for dispensing afflictive judgments (Le 26:28; Job 20:23; Isa 63:3; Jer 4:4; Eze 5:13; Da 9:16; Zec 8:21 etc.).
