Does God delight in the death of the wicked?

No, God does not delight in punishing sinners. But God does desire to demonstrate his wrath, power, and justice. He is glorified when his justice is upheld.

[11] Say to them, As I live, declares the Lord God, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live; turn back, turn back from your evil ways, for why will you die, O house of Israel? Ezekiel 33:11

[32] For I have no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Lord God; so turn, and live." Ezekiel 18:32

[22] What if God, desiring to show his wrath and to make known his power, has endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction Romans 9:22
