7 I will speak suddenly against a nation, or against a kingdom to pluck it up, and to root it out, and to destroy it.
8 But if this nation against whom I have pronounced turn from their wickedness, I will [a]repent of the plague that I thought to bring upon them.
9 And I will speak suddenly concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom to build it and to plant it.
Jeremiah 18:8When the Scripture attributeth repentance unto God, it is not that he doeth contrary to that which he hath ordained in his secret counsel: but when he threateneth, it is a calling to repentance, and when he giveth man grace to repent, the threatening (which ever containeth a condition in it) taketh no place: and this the scripture calleth repentance in God, because it so appeareth to man’s judgment.
