Miserere (Latin (passive imperative of misereo) for "Have mercy" or "Have pity") is the first word in Latin of Psalm 51, whose first verse became known in England and its early colonies as the "neck verse" due to its common use in literacy tests administered to criminal-case defendants claiming benefit of clergy.
