Romans 8:2  For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free <ἐλευθερόω eleutheroo> from the law of sin and death.

Romans 8:21  because the creation itself also will be delivered <ἐλευθερόω eleutheroo> from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Galatians 5:1  Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free <ἐλευθερόω eleutheroo>, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
