Latin term or phrase: persuasit, and uteremur
The 2 verbs above needs to be translated, and have the syntax (person, tense, mood, voice; type of subordinate clause) explained. This verb was found with in the context of the sentence following.

Sapiens ille nobis persuasit ut aequis legibus semper uteremur.

I believe that persuasit, means; make sweet to, or persuade.
Juliana
The wise man persuades us in order that we [may] always use/enjoy fair/just laws.
Explanation:
Persuasit is 3rd person sing. present indicative. It comes from persuadeo, which means to convince or persuade and takes the dative (nobis).

Uteremur= deponent verb, 1st person pl. subjunctive. It takes the ablative (aequis legibus). It's mood is governed by "ut."

Is this a homework assignment, perchance? I hope this helped.
