Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Noun Strong's Number: g1849 Greek: exousia

Authority:

denotes "authority" (from the impersonal verb exesti, "it is lawful"). From the meaning of "leave or permission," or liberty of doing as one pleases, it passed to that of "the ability or strength with which one is endued," then to that of the "power of authority," the right to exercise power, e.g., Mat 9:6; 21:23; 2Cr 10:8; or "the power of rule or government," the power of one whose will and commands must be obeyed by others, e.g., Mat 28:18; Jhn 17:2; Jud 1:25; Rev 12:10; 17:13; more specifically of apostolic "authority," 2Cr 10:8; 13:10; the "power" of judicial decision, Jhn 19:10; of "managing domestic affairs," Mar 13:34. By metonymy, or name-change (the substitution of a suggestive word for the name of the thing meant), it stands for "that which is subject to authority or rule," Luk 4:6 (RV, "authority," for the AV "power"); or, as with the English "authority," "one who possesses authority, a ruler, magistrate," Rom 13:1-3; Luk 12:11; Tts 3:1; or "a spiritual potentate," e.g., Eph 3:10; 6:12; Col 1:16; 2:10, 15; 1Pe 3:22. The RV usually translates it "authority."

In 1Cr 11:10 it is used of the veil with which a woman is required to cover herself in an assembly or church, as a sign of the Lord's "authority" over the church.
See JURISDICTION, LIBERTY, POWER, RIGHT, STRENGTH.

A-2 Noun Strong's Number: g2003 Greek: epitage

Authority:

an injunction (from epi, "upon," tasso, "to order"), is once rendered "authority," Tts 2:15 (RV, marg., "commandment").
See COMMANDMENT.

Note: The corresponding verb is epitasso, "to command."
See COMMAND.

A-3 Noun Strong's Number: g5247 Greek: huperoche

Authority:

primarily, "a projection, eminence," as a mountain peak, hence, metaphorically, "pre-eminence, superiority, excellency," is once rendered "authority," 1Ti 2:2, AV (marg., "eminent place"), RV, "high place," of the position of magistrates; in 1Cr 2:1, "excellency" (of speech). Cp. huperecho, "to surpass."
See EXCELLENCY.

A-4 Noun Strong's Number: g1413 Greek: dunastes

Authority:

akin to dunamis, "power," (Eng., "dynasty,") signifies "a potentate, a high officer;" in Act 8:27, of a high officer, it is rendered "of great authority;" in Luk 1:52, RV, "princes, (AV, "the mighty"); in 1Ti 6:15 it is said of God ("Potentate").
See MIGHTY, POTENTATE.

B-1 Verb Strong's Number: g1850 Greek: exousiazo

Authority:

akin to A, No. 1, signifies "to exercise power," Luk 22:25; 1Cr 6:12; 7:4 (twice).
See POWER.

B-2 Verb Strong's Number: g2715 Greek: katexousiazo

Authority:

kata, "down," intensive, and No. 1, "to exercise authority upon," is used in Mat 20:25; Mar 10:42.

B-3 Verb Strong's Number: g831 Greek: authenteo

Authority:

from autos, "self," and a lost noun hentes, probably signifying working (Eng., "authentic"), "to execise authority on one's own account, to domineer over," is used in 1Ti 2:12, AV, "to usurp authority," RV, "to have dominion." In the earlier usage of the word it signified one who with his own hand killed either others or himself. Later it came to denote one who acts on his own "authority;" hence, "to exercise authority, dominion."
See DOMINION, Note.
