How to use repent in a sentence?

  1. Anuj Somany:

    Keeping sycophants is like harboring serpents under own pants; A fool being an arrogant feels confident that nurturing them will never turn into an unpleasant incident in his life, but hundred percent one day they inject a poisonous bite or dent to make him faint only and then he has to regret and repent.

  2. PHILIP GRAHAM RYKEN:

    A House Divided Understand what is at stake in the decision we make for or against Jesus Christ. To serve God’s true and eternal King is to enter the way to everlasting life. Through faith in Christ, we will enter paradise. But to reject the kingship of Christ is to fall under the judgment of God. If we go our own way in life—if we insist on having the upper hand over other people, refusing to give up our foolish and selfish pleasures, always breaking God’s commandments and never submitting to his will for our lives—then we will never enter the kingdom of God. Unless we repent, we will be lost forever.

  3. Molière:

    We often marry in despair, so that we repent of it all our life after.

  4. Benjamin Franklin:

    To err is human, to repent divine, to persist devilish.

  5. Derek Hill:

    Repent and give yourself to Jesus and start a new life.
