Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ephesians 4:22

_ _ That ye — following “Ye have been taught” (Ephesians 4:21).

_ _ concerning the former conversation — “in respect to your former way of life.”

_ _ the old man — your old unconverted nature (Romans 6:6).

_ _ is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts — rather, “which is being corrupted (‘perisheth,’ compare Galatians 6:8, ‘corruption,’ that is, destruction) according to (that is, as might be expected from) the lusts of deceit.” Deceit is personified; lusts are its servants and tools. In contrast to “the holiness of the truth,” Ephesians 4:24, and “truth in Jesus,” Ephesians 4:21; and answering to Gentile “vanity,” Ephesians 4:17. Corruption and destruction are inseparably associated together. The man’s old-nature-lusts are his own executioners, fitting him more and more for eternal corruption and death.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ephesians 4:17-32.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ephesians 4:22

The old man — That is, the whole body of sin. All sinful desires are deceitful; promising the happiness which they cannot give.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Ephesians 4:22

That ye put off concerning the former conversation (e) the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

(e) Yourselves.
