    Anyone who can read plain English can see that there are no conditions attached to the statement and therefore it is obvious that this verse is an "unconditional" statement. But since those words contradict your mistaken views you just add words are not there.

    Anyone can make the Bible say anything which he wants it to say by using your method. I will give you the last word on this subject but nothing you can possibly say will make the statement a "conditional" one instead of an "unconditional" one.

    No, the LORD determined that the children of Israel would have 490 years to repent.

    You are misunderstanding the words that are there.
    The "condition" is found in a later verse:

    Daniel 9:27
    27 And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.


    For the overspreading of abominations, God would make Jerusalem desolate.
    If the children of Israel had repented by the end of the 490 years given to them, then there wouldn't be any overspreading of abominations to give God a reason to make Jerusalem desolate.
    Learn to read what is written.
