Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Ephesians 4:24

_ _ put on the new man — Opposed to “the old man,” which is to be “put off” (Ephesians 4:22). The Greek here (kainon) is different from that for “re-new-ed” (Ephesians 4:23). Put on not merely a renovated nature, but a new, that is, altogether different nature, a changed nature (compare Note, see on Colossians 3:10).

_ _ after God, etc. — Translate, “Which hath been created (once for all: so the Greek aorist means: in Christ, Ephesians 2:10; so that in each believer it has not to be created again, but to be put on) after (the image of) God” (Genesis 1:27; Colossians 3:10; 1 Peter 1:15), etc. God’s image in which the first Adam was originally created, is restored, to us far more gloriously in the second Adam, the image of the invisible God (2 Corinthians 4:4; Colossians 1:15; Hebrews 1:3).

_ _ in righteousness — “IN” it as the element of the renewed man.

_ _ true holiness — rather, as the Greek, “holiness of the truth”; holiness flowing from sincere following of “the truth of God” (Romans 1:25; Romans 3:7; Romans 15:8): opposed to “the lusts of deceit” (Greek, Ephesians 4:22); compare also Ephesians 4:21, “truth is in Jesus.” “Righteousness” is in relation to our fellow men, the second table of the law; “Holiness,” in relation to God, the first table; the religious observance of offices of piety (compare Luke 1:75). In the parallel (Colossians 3:10) it is, “renewed in knowledge after the image,” etc. As at Colosse the danger was from false pretenders to knowledge, the true “knowledge” which flows from renewal of the heart is dwelt on; so at Ephesus, the danger being from the corrupt morals prevalent around, the renewal in “holiness,” contrasted with the Gentile “uncleanness” (Ephesians 4:19), and “righteousness,” in contrast to “greediness,” is made prominent.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Ephesians 4:17-32.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes
