Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Verb Strong's Number: g312 Greek: anangello

Declare, Declaration:

signifies "to announce, report, bring back tidings" (ana, "back," angello, "to announce"). Possibly the ana carries the significance of upward, i.e., heavenly, as characteristic of the nature of the tidings. In the following, either the AV or the RV translates the word by the verb "to declare;" in Jhn 4:25, RV, "declare," AV, "tell;" in 16:13-15, RV, "declare," AV, "shew;" in Act 15:4, RV, "rehearsed," AV, "declared;" in Act 19:18, RV, "declaring," AV, "shewed" (a reference, perhaps, to the destruction of their idols, in consequence of their new faith); in Act 20:20, RV, "declaring," AV, "have shewed;" in 1Jo 1:5, RV, "announce," AV, "declare."

A-2 Verb Strong's Number: g518 Greek: apangello

Declare, Declaration:

signifies "to announce or report from a person or place" (apo, "from"); hence, "to declare, publish;" it is rendered "declare" in Luk 8:47; Hbr 2:12; 1Jo 1:3. It is very frequent in the Gospels and Acts; elsewhere, other than the last two places mentioned, only in 1Th 1:9; 1Jo 1:2.
See BRING, A, No. 36.

A-3 Verb Strong's Number: g1229 Greek: diangello

Declare, Declaration:

lit., "to announce through," hence, "to declare fully, or far and wide" (dia, "through"), is translated "declaring" in Act 21:26, RV (AV, "to signify"); in Luk 9:60, RV, "publish abroad" (for AV, "preach"), giving the verb its fuller significance; so in Rom 9:17, for AV, "declared,"

A-4 Verb Strong's Number: g2605 Greek: katangello

Declare, Declaration:

lit., "to report down" (kata, intensive), is ordinarily translated "to preach;" "declare" in Act 17:23, AV (RV, "set forth"); in 1Cr 2:1, RV, "proclaiming," for AV, "declaring." It is nowhere translated by "declare" in the RV.

A-7 Verb Strong's Number: g1555 Greek: ekdiegeomai

Declare, Declaration:

properly, "to narrate in full," came to denote, "to tell, declare;" it is used in Act 13:41; 15:3.

Declare, Declaration:

lit., to lead out," signifies "to make known, rehearse, declare," Luk 24:35 (AV, "told;" RV, rehearsed"); Act 10:8; 15:12, 14; 21:19. In Jhn 1:18, in the sentence "He hath declared Him," the other meaning of the verb is in view, to unfold in teaching, "to declare" by making known.

A-9 Verb Strong's Number: g3724 Greek: horizo

Declare, Declaration:

"to mark off by boundaries," signifies "to determine," usually of time; in Rom 1:4, Christ is said to have been "marked out" as the Son of God, by the fact of His resurrection; "declared" (RV, marg., "determined).

(1) In Luk 1:1, diegesis is a "narrative" (RV), not a "declaration" (AV).

(2) In 2Cr 8:19, "declaration" does not represent any word in the original.
