Below are articles from the following dictionary:
Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words
A-1 Verb Strong's Number: g2127 Greek: eulogeo

Bless, Blessed, Blessedness, Blessing:

lit., "to speak well of" (eu, "well," logos, "a word"), signifies,

(a) "to praise, to celebrate with praises," of that which is addressed to God, acknowledging His goodness, with desire for His glory, Luk 1:64; 2:28; 24:51, 53; Jam 3:9;

(b) "to invoke blessings upon a person," e.g., Luk 6:28; Rom 12:14. The present participle Passive, "blessed, praised," is especially used of Christ in Mat 21:9; 23:39, and the parallel passages; also in Jhn 12:13;

(c) "to consecrate a thing with solemn prayers, to ask God's blessing on a thing," e.g., Luk 9:16; 1Cr 10:16;

(d) "to cause to prosper, to make happy, to bestow blessings on," said of God, e.g., in Act 3:26; Gal 3:9; Eph 1:3. Cp. the synonym aineo, "to praise."
See PRAISE.

A-2 Verb Strong's Number: g1757 Greek: eneulogeomai

Bless, Blessed, Blessedness, Blessing:

"to bless," is used in the Passive Voice, Act 3:25; Gal 3:8. The prefix en apparently indicates the person on whom the blessing is conferred.

A-3 Verb Strong's Number: g3106 Greek: makarizo

Bless, Blessed, Blessedness, Blessing:

from a root mak--, meaning "large, lengthy," found also in makros, "long," mekos, "length," hence denotes "to pronounce happy, blessed," Luk 1:48; Jam 5:11.
See HAPPY.

B-1 Adjective Strong's Number: g2128 Greek: eulogetos

Bless, Blessed, Blessedness, Blessing:

akin to A, 1, means "blessed, praised;" it is applied only to God, Mar 14:61; Luk 1:68; Rom 1:25; 9:5; 2Cr 1:3; 11:31; Eph 1:3; 1Pe 1:3. In the Sept. it is also applied to man, e.g., in Gen 24:31; 26:29; Deu 7:14; Jdg 17:2; Rth 2:20; 1Sa 15:13.

B-2 Adjective Strong's Number: g3107 Greek: makarios

Bless, Blessed, Blessedness, Blessing:

akin to A, No. 3, is used in the beatitudes in Mat 5 and Luke 6, is especially frequent in the Gospel of Luke, and is found seven times in Revelation, Rev 1:3; 14:13; 16:15; 19:9; 20:6; 22:7, 14. It is said of God twice, 1Ti 1:11; 6:15. In the beatitudes the Lord indicates not only the characters that are "blessed," but the nature of that which is the highest good.

C-1 Noun Strong's Number: g2129 Greek: eulogia

Bless, Blessed, Blessedness, Blessing:

akin to A, 1, lit., "good speaking, praise," is used of

(a) God and Christ, Rev 5:12, 13; 7:12;

(b) the invocation of blessings, benediction, Hbr 12:17; Jam 3:10;

(c) the giving of thanks, 1Cr 10:16;

(d) a blessing, a benefit bestowed, Rom 15:29; Gal 3:14; Eph 1:3; Hbr 6:7; of a monetary gift sent to needy believers, 2Cr 9:5, 6;

(e) in a bad sense, of fair speech, Rom 16:18, RV, where it is joined with chrestologia, "smooth speech," the latter relating to the substance, eulogia to the expression.
See BOUNTY.

C-2 Noun Strong's Number: g3108 Greek: makarismos

Bless, Blessed, Blessedness, Blessing:

akin to A, 3, "blessedness," indicates an ascription of blessing rather than a state; hence in Rom 4:6, where the AV renders it as a noun, "(describeth) the blessedness;" the RV rightly puts "(pronounceth) blessing." So Rom 4:9. In Gal 4:15 the AV has "blessedness," RV, "gratulation." The Galatian believers had counted themselves happy when they heard and received the Gospel. Had they lost that opinion?
See GRATULATION.

Note: In Act 13:34, hosia, lit., "holy things," is translated "mercies" (AV), "blessings" (RV).
