I apologize for offending you. Please forgive me.

Please accept my apology. I hope you can forgive me.

You have my sincere apology. It won't happen again.

 

 

*Here are some expressions for accepting, or refusing, an apology:

Don't worry about it. It's not a problem.

Thanks for apologizing. You're forgiven.

I accept your apology. We all make mistakes.

I'm sorry, but an apology just isn't enough.
