[B-Greek] Where does 'eleos' fit in here?

The variant  reflects  the Hebraistic turn of phrase POIEW ELEOS  
META.  Since the Goettingen apparatus has ELEOS marked as a  
hexaplaric plus, the primary issue is NOT the sense of the verse as a  
whole but rather its quantitative equivalence to the source text.
How about:

Do not put us to shame,
but do mercy with us in your fairness
and in your abundant mercy.
