668 apopheúgō (from 575 /apó, "away from" and 5343 /pheúgō, "flee") – properly, flee from (escape). 668 (apopheúgō) underlines the previous (undesirable) connection – hence, also the need to move on ("escaping by flight," K. Wuest). 668 (apopheúgō) then emphasizes separation – a full breaking away from the previous situation.
