The true God felt regret over the calamity that he had spoken of causing to them; and he did not cause it.—Jonah 3:10.
The way that God is willing to mold us shows that he is reasonable and adaptable. (Isa. 64:8) That is evident in situations where Jehovah determines to take action based on his just judgment of people but then changes his mind because of their response. When the people of Nineveh repented and turned around from their bad way, Jehovah changed his mind, as shown in the words of today’s text. The Hebrew term translated “felt regret” actually pertains to a change of attitude or intention. The true God felt regret in the case of the Ninevites; that is, he changed his intention regarding them. How comforting it is to know that Jehovah our Potter is reasonable and adaptable, gracious and merciful, willing to change his course based on positive changes that erring ones make! w13 6/15 4:12, 13
