What is the Greek word for redeemed?

I'd like a translation as close to the meaning of the English word as possible.

One suitable word might be Apolutrosis, which appears in several Bible verses and refers to similar concepts to the English word redemption: liberation, deliverance, with the implication that this has been won by payment.

There are two words meaning "redeem. " "Lutron" literally means ransom, or give money to regain someone of value to you. "Exagorazo" means redeem in the sense of purchasing something back.
