I was reading a book and came across the phrase "es reut mich". I am not familiar with the conjugated word of "reut". I understand the phrase to mean "it pains me," but what does it really mean?
It means "to regret/to feel remorse".
Note that "reuen" is not used in spoken or written language anymore. Nowadays you would use "(etw.) bereuen".
