1The Latin Vulgate frequently uses the construction of ago + paenitentiam to express the verb repent. Latin does have the verb paeniteo but it is used primarily in the sense of regret. Return to text.
2The Catholic church uses the passive voice (misereatur) in the similar Christian expression. Grammatically, that makes no sense to me so I chose to use the active voice. Misereo takes the genitive. Return to text.
