Retributive vs Distributive

Another paradox? It seems that God presents many paradoxes; love and justice, all-knowing yet free will, retributive justice and distributive justice, choosing second borns over first borns, choosing barren women to carry out his Abahamic promises.

I've been struck lately by the many instances of distributive and retributive justice in the bible. It seems that I can not nicely place God into one particular box.
