Jonah 3:10

10 Then God saw their actions-that they had turned from their evil ways[a]-so God relented from the disaster He had threatened to do to them. And He did not do it.

Jonah 3:10 In-Context

8 Furthermore, both man and beast must be covered with sackcloth, and everyone must call out earnestly to God. Each must turn from his evil ways and from the violence he is doing.
9 Who knows? God may turn and relent; He may turn from His burning anger so that we will not perish.
10 Then God saw their actions-that they had turned from their evil ways-so God relented from the disaster He had threatened to do to them. And He did not do it.
