Yahweh the God who ignores Repentance
Here is an interesting incident from the Bible:
You came back and wept before the LORD, but he paid no attention to your weeping and turned a deaf ear to you. And so you stayed in Kadesh many days?all the time you spent there. (Deuteronomy 1:45-46)
So a group of Israelites come crying before Yahweh, and Yahweh doesn't pay attention to them, rather he completely ignores them!
So to put it simple, Yahweh ignored the repentance of these people.
And Allah Knows Best!
