At one moment I may declare concerning a nation or a kingdom, that I will pluck up and break down and destroy it,
but if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will change my mind about the disaster that I intended to bring on it.
And at another moment I may declare concerning a nation or a kingdom that I will build and plant it,
but if it does evil in my sight, not listening to my voice, then I will change my mind about the good that I had intended to do to it.
