Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Colossians 3:7

_ _ sometime — “once.”

_ _ walked ... when ye lived in them — These sins were the very element in which ye “lived” (before ye became once for all dead with Christ to them); no wonder, then, that ye “walked” in them. Compare on the opposite side, “living in the Spirit,” having as its legitimate consequence, “walking in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:25). The “living” comes first in both cases, the walking follows.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Colossians 3:5-7.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Colossians 3:7

Living denotes the inward principle; walking, the outward acts.
