The apparent contradiction involved in the Biblical record of God "repenting" when the Bible also says God does not repent (contrast 1 Samuel 15:11 and 15:29) is resolved in terms of man's viewpoint versus God's viewpoint. To "repent" means to "change the mind." God cannot repent, since He cannot change His mind concerning evil. He seems to repent, when man changes his mind concerning evil. God's attitude toward man is conditioned by man's attitude toward Him. It is because God does not repent that He must seem to repent when man "changes his mind."
