In both these NT examples, there are _two_ verbs : first, _repent _and
THEN _turn_

Actually there are 7 occurrences:
Pr 14:15
  Odes of Solomon 12:9 (twice)
  Sir 44:16
  Wis 11:23 ; 12:10 ; 12:19

You will notice that the only reference above which applies to the Hebrew
Bible is in Proverbs -- and this is a subject of dispute cf. the discussion
of this point in the _very_ long article in TDNT
