Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Noun Strong's Number: g3331 Greek: metathesis

Change (Noun and Verb):

"a transposition, or a transference from one place to another" (from meta, implying "change," and tithemi, "to put"), has the meaning of "change" in Hbr 7:12, in connection with the necessity of a "change" of the Law (or, as margin, law), if the priesthood is changed (see B, No. 3). It is rendered "translation" in Hbr 11:5, "removing" in Hbr 12:27.

B-1 Verb Strong's Number: g236 Greek: allasso

Change (Noun and Verb):

"to make other than it is" (from allos, "another"), "to transform, change," is used

(a) of the effect of the Gospel upon the precepts of the Law, Act 6:14;

(b) of the effect, on the body of a believer, of Christ's Return, 1Cr 15:51, 52;

(c) of the final renewal of the material creation, Hbr 1:12;

(d) of a change in the Apostle's mode of speaking (or dealing), Gal 4:20. In Rom 1:23 it has its other meaning, "to exchange."

B-2 Verb Strong's Number: g3337 Greek: metallasso

Change (Noun and Verb):

from meta, "implying change," and No. 1, "to change one thing for another, or into another," Rom 1:25, 26, is translated "exchange" in ver. 25.

B-3 Verb Strong's Number: g3346 Greek: metatithemi

Change (Noun and Verb):

"to place differently, to change," (akin to A, above), is said of priesthood, Hbr 7:12.
See CARRY, No. 5.

B-4 Verb Strong's Number: g3328 Greek: metaballo

Change (Noun and Verb):

meta, as in No. 2, and ballo, "to throw," signifies "to turn quickly," or, in the Middle Voice, "to change one's mind," and is found in Act 28:6.

Notes: (1) In Phl 3:21, for the AV rendering of metaschematizo, "change," the RV has "fashion anew;" in 2Cr 3:18 metamorphoo is rendered "change," in the AV (RV, "transform"). For metanoia, "a change of mind," see REPENTANCE.
