Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Verb Strong's Number: g5343 Greek: pheugo


"to flee" (Lat., fuga, "flight," etc.; cp. Eng. "fugitive, subterfuge"), is rendered "escape" in Mat 23:33; Hbr 11:34.

A-2 Verb Strong's Number: g668 Greek: apopheugo


"to flee away from" (apo, "from," and No. 1), is used in 2Pe 1:4; 2:18, 20.

A-3 Verb Strong's Number: g1309 Greek: diapheugo


lit., "to flee through," is used of the "escaping" of prisoners from a ship, Act 27:42. For the word in Act 27:44, see No. 5.

A-4 Verb Strong's Number: g1628 Greek: ekpheugo


"to flee out of a place" (ek, "out of," and No. 1), is said of the "escape" of prisoners, Act 16:27; of Sceva's sons, "fleeing" from the demoniac, Act 19:16; of Paul's escape from Damascus, 2Cr 11:33; elsewhere with reference to the judgments of God, Luk 21:36; Rom 2:3; Hbr 2:3; 12:25; 1Th 5:3.

A-5 Verb Strong's Number: g1295 Greek: diasozo


in the Active Voice, "to bring safely through a danger" (dia, "through," intensive, sozo, "to save"), to make completely whole, to heal, Luk 7:3; to bring "safe," Act 23:24; "to save," 27:43; in the Passive Voice, Mat 14:36, "were made whole;" 1Pe 3:20. It is also used in the Passive Voice, signifying "to escape," said of shipwrecked mariners, Act 27:44; 28:1, 4.

Note: Exerchomai, "to come or go out of a place," is rendered, "He escape," in Jhn 10:39, AV, an unsuitable translation, both in meaning and in regard to the circumstances of the Lord's departure from His would-be captors. The RV "went forth" is both accurate and appropriate to the dignity of the Lord's actions.

B-1 Noun Strong's Number: g1545 Greek: ekbasis


"a way out" (ek, "out," baino, "to go"), denotes

(a) "an escape," 1Cr 10:13, used with the definite article and translated "the way of escape," as afforded by God in case of temptation;

(b) "an issue or result," Hbr 13:7.
See END, ISSUE. Cp. ekbaino, "to go out," Hbr 11:15 (some mss. have exerchomai).
