On a number of occasions, the Bible that Jehovah "felt regret." Jonah 3:10; Gen. 6:6, 7; Judg. 2:18; 1 Sam. 15:11. Since God's activity is perfect, his regret is never because of a mistake on his part. Num. 23:19; Deut. 32:4. Rather, in Hebrew, to feel regret can mean to change one's mind of intention. For example, because Jehovah is reasonable, adaptable, and merciful, he is willing to alter his intened actions toward erring ones in response to their repentance and the changes they make.
