Cognate: 5010 táksis (a feminine noun, derived from 5021 /tássō, "to arrange, order") – properly, an arrangement (a brand of ordering), placing one member over another in rank, approval, etc. See 5021 (tassō).

[5010 /táksis ("orderly array") was a military term in ancient Greece and thus used as a ready "metaphor in Paul's conversation with the soldiers in His confinement" (WS, 904).

5010 (taksis), as an ancient military term, describes an ordered troop ("cohort") – arranged in descending rank. This term suggests a detailed ordering rather than simply a general disposition of an army (as also in Thucydides, etc.).]

Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 5010: τάξις

τάξις, τάξεως, (τάσσω), from Aeschylus and Herodotus down;

1. an arranging, arrangement.

2. order, i. e. a fixed succession observing also a fixed time: Luke 1:8.

3. due or right order: κατά τάξιν, in order, 1 Corinthians 14:40; orderly condition, Colossians 2:5 (some give it here a military sense, 'orderly array', see στερέωμα, c.).

4. the post, rank, or position which one holds in civil or other affairs; and since this position generally depends on one's talents, experience, resources, τάξις becomes equivalent to character, fashion, quality, style, (2 Macc. 9:18 2Macc. 1:19; οὐ γάρ ἱστορίας, ἀλλά κουρεακης λαλιᾶς ἐμοί δοκοῦσι τάξιν ἔχειν, Polybius 3, 20, 5): κατά τήν τάξιν (for which in Hebrews 7:15 we have κατά τήν ὁμοιότητα) Μελχισέδεκ, after the manner of the priesthood (A. V. order) of Melchizedek (according to the Sept. of Psalm 109:5 () עַל־דִּבְרָתִי), Hebrews 5:6, 10; Hebrews 6:20; Hebrews 7:11, 17, 21 (where T Tr WH omit the phrase).
