Genesis 6:6; Deuteronomy 32:36; Psalm 106:45; Jeremiah 18:8; Jeremiah 26:3; Numbers 23:19

And dthe Lord regretted that he had made man on the earth, and it egrieved him to his heart.


36  For cthe Lord will vindicate1 his people

dand have compassion on his servants,

when he sees that their power is gone

and there is none remaining, ebond or free.


45  For their sake he yremembered his covenant,

and zrelented according to athe abundance of his steadfast love.


and if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, xturns from its evil, yI will relent of the disaster that I intended to do to it.


yIt may be they will listen, and every one turn from his evil way, zthat I may relent of the disaster that I intend to do to them abecause of their evil deeds.


19  cGod is not man, that he should lie,

or a son of man, that he should change his mind.

Has he said, and will he not do it?

Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?
