Galatians 5:1

With freedom (thi eleuteriai).
Rather dative case instead of instrumental, "for freedom," "for the (article) freedom that belongs to us children of the freewoman" (4:31).

Did Christ set us free (hmav Xristov hleuterwsen).
Effective aorist active indicative of eleuterow (from erxomai, to go, go free).

Stand fast therefore (sthkete oun).
See on Mark 3:31; 1 Corinthians 16:13 for this late word from perfect stem of isthmi, "keep on standing therefore," "stay free since Christ set you free."

Be not entangled again (mh palin enexeste).
"Stop being held in by a yoke of bondage." Common word for ensnare by trap. The Judaizers were trying to lasso the Galatians for the old yoke of Judaism.
