A Divine will to punish


"There seems to be a contradiction between verses-

"One verse says, 'For I do not desire the death of a condemned person (Ezekiel 18),' but another verse says, 'For Gd desires to kill them (Samuel I 2)!'

"There is no contradiction - if the condemned person repents then Gd does not wish him to be punished. If he does not repent, then Gd does wish that person punished."

(Talmud, Niddah 70b)

Have a great day,
