έλεος του Θεού, θεία χάρις

The exact translation is θεία χάρις /'θea hαris/ but I would also like to add έλεος του Θεού /'eleos tu θeu/ which is back-translated as mercy of God. It is a more common expression in the Target language and the Target reader will be familiar. But what you should bare in mind when choosing the right expression is the register of the context (formal/informal).
