Colossians 2:22

_ _ Which — things, namely, the three things handled, touched, and tasted.

_ _ are to perish — literally, “are constituted (by their very nature) for perishing (or ‘destruction by corruption’) in (or ‘with’) their using up (consumption).” Therefore they cannot really and lastingly defile a man (Matthew 15:17; 1 Corinthians 6:13).

_ _ after — according to. Referring to Colossians 2:20, Colossians 2:21. All these “ordinances” are according to human, not divine, injunction.

_ _ doctrinesGreek, teachings.” Alford translates, “(doctrinal) systems.”

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Colossians 2:16-23.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Perish in the using — Have no farther use, no influence on the mind.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Colossians 2:22

(22) Which all are to perish with the using;) (23) after the commandments and doctrines of men?

(22) Another argument: the spiritual and inward kingdom of God cannot consist in these outward things, which perish with the using.

(23) The third argument: because God is not the author of these traditions, therefore they are not that which we are obligated to do.
