Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Colossians 3:13

_ _ Forbearing — as to present offenses.

_ _ forgiving — as to past offenses.

_ _ quarrel — rather as Greek, “cause of blame,” “cause of complaint.”

_ _ Christ — who had so infinitely greater cause of complaint against us. The oldest manuscripts and Vulgate read “the Lord.” English Version is supported by one very old manuscript and old versions. It seems to have crept in from Ephesians 4:32.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Colossians 3:12-17.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Colossians 3:13

Forbearing one another — If anything is now wrong. And forgiving one another — What is past.
