The word repent comes from the Old French word repentir, which means, "to feel regret for sins or crimes." If you cheat on an exam in school, and feel guilty afterwards, you might repent for your bad behavior by confessing to your teacher. The verb repent is often used in a religious context: when you repent, you try to make up for what you've done, promise to avoid sin in the future and devote yourself to God.
To repent is to turn back to God to serve Him.

"If a righteous man turns from righteousness and commits iniquity he will die, none of his righteous deeds shall be remembered."

"When a wicked man turns from wickedness and does what is right and just he shall live."

Abraham was His friend because he served God and did what he was commanded.

Dude, just telling people over and over again that they are wrong without offering any useful information is what trolls do.
Either start talking like a rational human being or Im going to put you on my ignore list.

Well, considering that everyone here thinks that they know what they are talking about then they should know where I am coming from just as I know where they are coming from....But, it seems that they don't...

Reconcile:
1 a : to restore to friendship or harmony <reconciled the factions> b : settle, resolve <reconcile differences>
2. the process of making consistent or compatible.
