What are some other examples where God has conceded?
To acknowledge, often reluctantly, as being true, just, or proper; admit. (reluctant...as in God did it unwillingly...as in he opposed the truth but did it anyway...as in maybe he reluctantly gave his only son Jesus to us)
To yield or grant (a privilege or right, for example).
To recognize, often reluctantly, the reality or truth of: acknowledge, admit, avow, confess, grant, own (up). Slang fess up. Chiefly Regional allow. See affirm/deny/argue, knowledge/ignorance.
To let have as a favor, prerogative, or privilege: accord, award, give, grant, vouchsafe. See give/take/reciprocity.
To make a concession: compromise. Idioms: give and take, go fifty-fifty, meet someone halfway. See agree/disagree.
To cease opposition: give in, yield. See win/lose/recovery.
