Separation from means that God has saved us from all that is evil and sinful. Separation unto means that God has saved us unto Himself (for Himself), that we might belong to Him and enjoy Him forever. There are some verses that speak only of separation from and there are other verses that speak only of separation unto. Look up the following passages, read them carefully, and if the verse is speaking of separation from, write "from." If the verse is speaking of separation unto, write "unto." The verse may or may not have the word "from" or "unto" contained in it. It is not the word we are looking for, but the idea.
