Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Adjective Strong's Number: g5446 Greek: phusikos

Natural, Naturally:

originally signifying "produced by nature, inborn," from phusis, "nature" (see below), cp. Eng., "physical," "physics," etc., denotes

(a) "according to nature," Rom 1:26, 27;

(b) "governed by mere natural instincts," 2Pe 2:12, RV, "(born) mere animals," AV and RV marg., "natural (brute beasts)."

A-2 Adjective Strong's Number: g5591 Greek: psuchikos

Natural, Naturally:

"belonging to the psuche, soul" (as the lower part of the immaterial in man), "natural, physical," describes the man in Adam and what pertains to him (set in contrast to pneumatikos, "spiritual"), 1Cr 2:14; 15:44 (twice), 46 (in the latter used as a noun); Jam 3:15, "sensual" (RV marg., "natural" or "animal"), here relating perhaps more especially to the mind, a wisdom in accordance with, or springing from, the corrupt desires and affections; so in Jud 1:19.

B-1 Noun Strong's Number: g1078 Greek: genesis

Natural, Naturally:

"birth," is used in Jam 1:23, of the "natural face," lit., "the face of his birth," "what God made him to be" (Hort).

Note: In Rom 11:21, 24 the preposition kata, "according to," with the noun phusis, "nature," is translated "natural," of branches, metaphorically describing members of the nation of Israel.

C-1 Adverb Strong's Number: g5446 Greek: phusikos

Natural, Naturally:

"naturally, by nature" (akin to A, No. 1), is used in Jud 1:10.

Note: In Phl 2:20, AV, gnesios, "sincerely, honorably, truly" (from the adjective gnesios, "true, sincere, genuine;" see, e.g., Phl 4:3), is translated "naturally" (RV, "truly;" marg., "genuinely").
