To Compensate For
To Make Up For
transitive verb, godan verb
To make reparation is to compensate for or to make up for. Take responsibility for your actions and make up for everything.
When you go to compensate for what you did, you become too good for your own britches. You are too good now (つぐなう).
Even if you atoned for your sins with your own death, it wouldn’t solve the problem.
