Tao Bible - Jeremiah 18:8

If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.
~ King James version ~

Tao is beyond good and evil.
~ possible Taoist alternative ~
This is the second instance in the Book of Jeremiah in which we are told that God will/may repent of something. In order to repent, an entity must accept the definitions of good and evil because the act of repenting is to acknowledge wrongdoing or sin.

Tao has no need to repent because Tao is beyond good and evil. Tao represents -- for lack of a better description -- the laws and principles of nature. Good and evil are human concepts that merely try to understand the Way...that is beyond complete human comprehension.
