Jeremiah 18:7-10 MSG

7 At any moment I may decide to pull up a people or a country by the roots and get rid of them.
8 But if they repent of their wicked lives, I will think twice and start over with them.
9 At another time I might decide to plant a people or country,
10 but if they don't cooperate and won't listen to me, I will think again and give up on the plans I had for them.
