English Standard Version
Chapter 3 8
but let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and let them call out mightily to God. Let everyone turn from his evil way and from the violence that is in his hands. 9
Who knows? God may turn and relent and turn from his fierce anger, so that we may not perish.” 10
When God saw what they did, how they turned from their evil way, God relented of the disaster that he had said he would do to them, and he did not do it.
