    Gods can be (and usually are) jealous...

    "You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me."

    Yes, this was the god I had in mind when I said that... But also those Greek gods seem to be jealous among themselves. Perhaps they shouldn't... (As for this god of the Hebrews, in a way it seems to make sense he is jealous... he's a lonely one.)

    This question might be better served if it fell into categories so there's a bit of context. Examples being war, revenge, health, fortune, etc.

    It's still a good question, by the way meisenimverbis I just think it could be tweaked.

    Edit: a singular to a plural.

    That said if my life depended on it, I'd choose mad lad Apollo.

    A Roman wouldn't think like that, right? That he would angry one god by prefering another...

    I think Romans were fine with the idea of preferring one god over another, so long as you don't do anything to make another deity angry ... but praying to one god in particular is nothing that makes the others angry.
