Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Noun Strong's Number: g5010 Greek: taxis

Order (Noun and Verb):

"an arranging, arrangement, order" (akin to tasso, "to arrange, draw up in order"), is used in Luk 1:8 of the fixed succession of the course of the priests; of due "order," in contrast to confusion, in the gatherings of a local church, 1Cr 14:40; of the general condition of such, Col 2:5 (some give it a military significance here); of the Divinely appointed character or nature of a priesthood, of Melchizedek, as foreshadowing that of Christ, Hbr 5:6, 10; 6:20; 7:11 (where also the character of the Aaronic priesthood is set in contrast); 7:17 (in some mss., ver. 21).

A-2 Noun Strong's Number: g5001 Greek: tagma

Order (Noun and Verb):

a more concrete form of No. 1, signifying "that which has been arranged in order," was especially a military term, denoting "a company;" it is used metaphorically in 1Cr 15:23 of the various classes of those who have part in the first resurrection.

B-1 Verb Strong's Number: g392 Greek: anatassomai

Order (Noun and Verb):

"to arrange in order" (ana, "up," and the Middle Voice of tasso, "to arrange"), is used in Luk 1:1; AV, "to set forth in order" (RV, "to draw up"); the probable meaning is to bring together and so arrange details in "order."

B-2 Verb Strong's Number: g1299 Greek: diatasso

Order (Noun and Verb):

"to appoint, arrange, charge, give orders to," is used, in the Middle Voice, in Act 24:23, "gave order" (RV); 1Cr 11:34, "will I set in order;" in the Active Voice, in 1Cr 16:1, "I gave order" (RV).
See COMMAND, No. 1.

B-3 Verb Strong's Number: g1930 Greek: epidiorthoo

Order (Noun and Verb):

"to set in order" (epi, "upon," dia, "through, intensive," and orthos, "straight"), is used in Tts 1:5, in the sense of setting right again what was defective, a commission to Titus, not to add to what the Apostle himself had done, but to restore what had fallen into disorder since the Apostle had labored in Crete; this is suggested by the epi.

C-1 Adverb Strong's Number: g2517 Greek: kathexes

Order (Noun and Verb):

is translated "in order" in Luk 1:3; Act 11:4, RV (AV, "by order"); Act 18:23.

Note: In 2Cr 11:32, RV, the phrase "in order to" (as with the AV, "desirous to") represents nothing in the original: the infinitive mood of the verb piazo expresses the purpose, viz., "to take."
