KJV, NKJV, Webster, and Young are evidently reading a different version of
the Greek--one needs to look at the apparatus criticus--there are several
alternatives that append or prefix a relative pronoun hHi with (THi)
ELEUQERIAi as its antecedent and construe (THi) ELEUQERIAi with STHKETE
OUN, so KJV: "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath
made us free ..." (so also NKJV Webster, and Young)

That is perfectly intelligible,

To me, "the liberty WHEREWITH Christ hath made us free" does not make
sense. "To liberate us by means of liberty" does not seem to make sense.
Rather "the liberty for which Christ liberated us" would make sense.
Am I missing something?
