"machul li" - mem chet vav lamed, lamed yod


Explanation:
I can use the verb "samech, lamed, chet" or the verb "mem, chet, lamed". I used the latter one because the former just means to forgive whereas the second one, is more suitable, the pardon being received from God

נמחל


Explanation:
The question is not specific enough.

The usage in Hebrew is more complex than the English one, you have to know the whole context "who forgave whom", to work out an appropriate translation.
