Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Verb Strong's Number: g1325 Greek: didomi

Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer:

"to give," is translated "delivered" in Luk 7:15; RV, "gave;" so Luk 19:13.

A-2 Verb Strong's Number: g325 Greek: anadidomi

Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer:

ana, "up," and No. 1, "to deliver over, give up," is used of "delivering" the letter mentioned in Act 23:33.

Note: For the different verb in Act 15:30, see No. 4.

A-3 Verb Strong's Number: g591 Greek: apodidomi

Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer:

apo, "from," and No. 1, lit., "to give away," hence, "to give back or up," is used in Pilate's command for the Lord's body to be "given up," Mat 27:58; in the sense of "giving back," of the Lord's act in giving a healed boy back to his father, Luk 9:42.

A-4 Verb Strong's Number: g1929 Greek: epididomi

Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer:

lit., "to give upon or in addition," as from oneself to another, hence, "to deliver over," is used of the "delivering" of the roll of Isaiah to Christ in the synagogue, Luk 4:17; of the "delivering" of the epistle from the elders at Jerusalem to the church at Antioch, Act 15:30.

A-5 Verb Strong's Number: g3860 Greek: paradidomi

Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer:

"to deliver over," in Rom 6:17, RV, "that form of teaching whereunto ye were delivered," the figure being that of a mold which gives its shape to what is cast in it (not as the AV). In Rom 8:32 it is used of God in "delivering" His Son to expiatory Death; so Rom 4:25; see Mar 9:31; of Christ in "delivering" Himself up, Gal 2:20; Eph 5:2, 25.
See BETRAY, A. In Mar 1:14, RV, it is used of "delivering" John the Baptist to prison.
See PUT, No. 12.

A-6 Verb Strong's Number: g525 Greek: apallasso

Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer:

lit., "to change from" (apo, "from," allasso, "to change"), "to free from, release," is translated "might deliver" in Hbr 2:15; in Luk 12:58, it is used in a legal sense of being quit of a person, i.e., the opponent being appeased and withdrawing his suit. For its other meaning, "to depart," in Act 19:12, see DEPART.

A-7 Verb Strong's Number: g1659 Greek: eleutheroo

Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer:

"to set free," is translated "deliver" in Rom 8:21. In six other places it is translated "make free," Jhn 8:32, 36; Rom 6:18, 22; 8:2; Gal 5:1, RV, "set free."

A-8 Verb Strong's Number: g1807 Greek: exaireo

Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer:

lit., "to take out," denotes, in the Middle Voice, "to take out for oneself," hence, "to deliver, to rescue," the person who does so having a special interest in the result of his act. Thus it is used, in Gal 1:4, of the act of God in "delivering" believers "out of this present evil world," the Middle Voice indicating His pleasure in the issue of their "deliverance." It signifies to "deliver" by rescuing from danger, in Act 12:11; 23:27; 26:17; from bondage, Act 7:10, 34. For its other meaning, "to pluck out of," Mat 5:29; 18:9, see PLUCK.

A-9 Verb Strong's Number: g2673 Greek: katargeo

Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer:


A-10 Verb Strong's Number: g4506 Greek: rhuomai

Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer:

"to rescue from, to preserve from," and so, "to deliver," the word by which it is regularly translated, is largely synonymous with sozo, "to save," though the idea of "rescue from" is predominant in rhuomai (see Mat 27:43), that of "preservation from," in sozo. In Rom 11:26 the present participle is used with the article, as a noun, "the Deliverer." This is the construction in 1Th 1:10, where Christ is similarly spoken of. Here the AV wrongly has "which delivered" (the tense is not past); RV, "which delivereth;" the translation might well be (as in Rom 11:26), "our Deliverer," that is, from the retributive calamities with which God will visit men at the end of the present age. From that wrath believers are to be "delivered." The verb is used with apo, "away from," in Mat 6:13; Luk 11:4 (in some mss.); so also in Luk 11:4; Rom 15:31; 2Th 3:2; 2Ti 4:18; and with ek, "from, out of," in Luk 1:74; Rom 7:24; 2Cr 1:10; Col 1:13, from bondage; in 2Pe 2:9, from temptation; in 2Ti 3:11, from persecution; but ek is used of ills impending, in 2Cr 1:10; in 2Ti 4:17, ek indicates that the danger was more imminent than in ver. 18, where apo is used. Accordingly the meaning "out of the midst of" cannot be pressed in 1Th 1:10.

A-11 Verb Strong's Number: g5483 Greek: charizomai

Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer:

"to gratify, to do what is pleasing to anyone," is translated "deliver" in the AV of Act 25:11, 16; RV, "give up" (marg., "grant by favor," i.e., to give over to the Jews so as to gratify their wishes).

Note: For gennao and tikto, "to bear, to be delivered" (said of women at childbirth), see BEGET.

B-1 Noun Strong's Number: g629 Greek: apolutrosis

Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer:

denotes "redemption" (apo, "from," lutron, "a price of release"). In Hbr 11:35 it is translated "deliverance;" usually the release is effected by the payment of a ransom, or the required price, the lutron (ransom).

B-2 Noun Strong's Number: g859 Greek: aphesis

Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer:

denotes "a release, from bondage, imprisonment, etc." (the corresponding verb is aphiemi, "to send away, let go"); in Luk 4:18 it is used of "liberation" from captivity (AV, "deliverance," RV, "release").

B-3 Noun Strong's Number: g3086 Greek: lutrotes

Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer:

"a redeemer, one who releases" (see No. 1), is translated "deliverer" in Act 7:35 (RV marg., "redeemer").

Note: See also DELIVER, A, No. 10.

C-1 Verbal Adj Strong's Number: g1560 Greek: ekdotos

Deliver, Deliverance, Deliverer:

lit., "given up" (ek, "out of," didomi, "to give"), "delivered up" (to enemies, or to the power or will of someone), is used of Christ in Act 2:23.
