Goldy, God is not jealous of pagan deities. He is jealous for his people (those who open their hearts to him) in the sense that he wants us for himself. Is that so contemptible an attitude. He is jealous in the sense that, for our sake, it brings pain to him (yes Scripture describes his feelings in those terms) to see how we squander our affection and energy on enslavement to gods which are actually nothing of the sort.
