"Did Hezekiah king of Judah or anyone in Judah kill him? Didn't he fear the LORD and seek the LORD's favor, and so the LORD changed his mind about the disaster that he had spoken to them about. We're bringing great disaster on ourselves.
God is not a human male he doesn't lie, nor is he a human being he never vacillates. Once he speaks up, he's going to act, isn't he? Once he makes a promise, he'll fulfill it, won't he?
1 Samuel 15:29
Moreover, the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind, for he's not a man that he should change his mind."
Yet he is also wise and can bring disaster; he does not take back his words, but will rise up against the house of those who practice evil and against anyone who assists people who work iniquity.
2 Corinthians 1:19
For God's Son, Jesus the Messiah, who was preached among you by us by me, Silvanus, and Timothy was not "Yes" and "No." But with him it is always "Yes."
So he prayed to the LORD, "LORD, isn't this what I said while I was still in my home country? That's why I fled previously to Tarshish, because I knew you're a compassionate God, slow to anger, overflowing with gracious love, and reluctant to send trouble.
Why should the Egyptians say, "He brought them out with an evil intention to kill them in the mountains and to destroy them from the face of the earth'? Turn from your anger and change your mind about the calamity against your people.
So the LORD relented from this. "This will not happen," said the LORD.
So the LORD relented from this. "This will not happen, either," said the Lord GOD.
Who knows but that God may relent, have compassion, and turn from his fierce anger, so that we are not exterminated?"
God took note of what they did that they turned from their evil ways. Because God relented concerning the trouble about which he had warned them, he did not carry it out.
But if that nation about which I spoke turns from its evil way, I'll change my mind about the disaster that I had planned for it.
Perhaps they'll listen, and each of them will repent from his evil way. Then I'll change my mind about the disaster I'm planning to bring on them because of their evil deeds.
Now, change your habits and your deeds and obey the LORD your God, and the LORD will change his mind about the disaster that he told you about.
"If you will just remain in this land, I'll build you up and not pull you down. I'll plant you and not uproot you, for I'm sorry about the disaster I've brought on you.
2 Samuel 24:16
As the angel was stretching out his hand to destroy Jerusalem, the LORD was grieved because of the calamity, so he told the angel who was afflicting the people, "Enough! Stay your hand!" So the angel of the LORD remained near the threshing floor that belonged to Araunah the Jebusite.
But if that nation does evil in my eyes by not obeying me, I'll change my mind about the good that I said I would bring on it.
I'll turn my face away from them so that they'll defile my treasured place. Robbers will enter and profane it!
