Definitions & Insights – No Longer Subject to Bondage

Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. (Hebrews 2:14-15 KJV, emphasis mine)

destroy – to render idle, inactive, unemployed, inoperative

– to deprive of force, influence, power

– to cause a person or thing to have no further efficiency

– to put an end to, to do away with, to abolish

– to be severed from, separated from, discharged from, loosed
