Greek word 3340 (μετανοέω or μετανοώ):

The modern Greek word is μετανιώνω which means regret.

It is a compount word from μετά (G3326) and νοέω (G3539).

μετανοώ in a theological context means:
In front of God or a priest I admit my sins and I promise to change my life to the better.

So the meaning you are looking for is : I change my mind (regret) about my sins and as a result I turn away from them, I follow a new and better lifestyle, closer to God.
