God was justified to punish Israel however He saw fit when they disobeyed Him during His old covenant with them. He would also reward them with earthly blessings when they obeyed. Thankfully we live during God's dispensation of Grace today (Ephesians 3:2), where we are not under covenant law or subject to God's wrath (1 Thessalonians 5:9), but have been gifted all spiritual blessings in Heavenly places (Ephesians 1:3).
