Galatians 5:13

Ye were called for freedom (ep eleuqeriai eklhqhte). The same point as in Acts 5:1 made plainer by the use of ep (on the basis of, for the purpose of). See 1 Thessalonians 4:7 for this use of epi. Only use not (monon mh). No word for "use" in the Greek. Probably supply trepete or strepete, "turn not your liberty into an occasion for the flesh" (ei apormhn th sarki), as a spring board for license. On apormh, see on "2Co 5:12". Liberty so easily turns to license.
