6358. 'Cursed be their anger, for it is fierce' means an utter aversion to good and consequent damnation. This is clear from the meaning of 'cursed' as damnation, for one who has been cursed has been damned; and from the meaning of 'anger' as an aversion to good, dealt with in 357, 5034, 5798, 6356, so that 'fierce anger' is an utter aversion.
