And God saw their works, that they turned from their evil way; and God repented of the evil, that he had said that he would do unto them; and he did it not.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

3:10 God repented. The word “repent” means essentially “to change one’s mind.” When used to refer to God (e.g., Genesis 6:6), it must be understood as “appearing to change His mind.” God never changes His mind about sin, but when men repent concerning their own sins, then God (consistently with His unchanging nature) “appears” to “repent” (in human terminology) concerning His planned punishment on those sins.
