STRONGS NT 525: ἀπαλλάσσω

ἀπαλλάσσω: 1 aorist ἀπηλλαξα; passive (present ἀπαλλάσσομαι); perfect infinitive ἀπηλλάχθαι; (ἀλλάσσω to change; ἀπό, namely, τίνος); common in Greek writings; to remove, release; passive to be removed, to depart: ἀπ' αὐτῶν τάς νόσους, Acts 19:12 (Plato, Eryx. 401 c. εἰ αἱ νοσοι ἀπαλλαγειησαν ἐκ τῶν σωμάτων); in a transferred and especially in a legal sense, ἀπό with the genitive of person, to be set free, the opponent being appeased and withdrawing the suit, to be quit of one: Luke 12:58 (so with a simple genitive of person Xenophon, mem. 2, 9, 6). Hence, universally, to set free, deliver: τινα, Hebrews 2:15; (in secular authors the genitive of the thing freed from is often added; cf. Bleek on Heb. vol. ii. 1, p. 339f).
