    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:22

    a que dejis, en cuanto a la pasada manera de vivir; es a saber el viejo hombre que se corrompe conforme a los deseos del error;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ephesians 4:22

    Verse 22. That ye put off] And this has been one especial part of our
    teaching, that ye should abandon all these, and live a life totally opposite to what it was before.

    The old man] See the note on Rom. vi. 6, and especially the notes on Rom. xiii. 13, 14.

    Which is corrupt] The whole of your former life was corrupt and abominable; ye lived in the pursuit of pleasure and happiness; ye sought this in the gratification of the lusts of the flesh; and were ever deceived by these lusts, and disappointed in your expectations.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 22. That ye put off concerning the former conversation, the old man , &c.] Which is the corruption of nature; why this is called a man, and an old man, (see Gill on Romans 6:6), the putting him off, is not a removing him from the saints, nor a destroying him in them, nor a changing his nature; for he remains, and remains alive, and is the same old man he ever was, in regenerate persons; but it is a putting him off from his seat, and a putting him down from his government; a showing no regard to his rule and dominion, to his laws and lusts, making no provision for his support; and particularly, not squaring the life and conversation according to his dictates and directions; and therefore it is called a putting him off, concerning the former conversation: the change lies not, in the old man, who can never be altered, but in the conversation; he is not in the same power, but he retains the same sinful nature; he is put off, but he is not put out; and though he does not reign, he rages, and often threatens to get the ascendant: these words stand either in connection with ( Ephesians 4:17) and so are a continuation and an explanation of that exhortation; or else they point out what regenerate souls are taught by Christ to do, to quit the former conversation, to hate the garment spotted with the flesh, and to put it off; for the allusion is to the putting off of filthy garments, as the works of the flesh may be truly called, which flow from the vitiosity of nature, the old man: which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts ; the old man, or the vitiosity of nature, has its lusts; and these are deceitful; they promise pleasure and profit, but yield neither in the issue; they promise liberty, and bring into bondage; they promise secrecy and impunity, but expose to shame, and render liable to punishment; they sometimes put on a religious face, and so deceive, and fill men with pride and conceit, who think themselves to be something, when they are nothing: and through these the old man is corrupt; by these the corruption of nature is discovered; and the corruption that is in the world is produced hereby; and these make a man deserving of, and liable to the pit of corruption; and this is a good reason, why this corrupt old man, with respect to the life and conversation, should be put off.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 17-24 - The
    apostle charged the Ephesians in the name and by the authority of the Lord Jesus, that having professed the gospel, they should not be a the unconverted Gentiles, who walked in vain fancies and carna affections. Do not men, on every side, walk in the vanity of their minds? Must not we then urge the distinction between real and nomina Christians? They were void of all saving knowledge; they sat in darkness, and loved it rather than light. They had a dislike and hatre to a life of holiness, which is not only the way of life God require and approves, and by which we live to him, but which has some likenes to God himself in his purity, righteousness, truth, and goodness. The truth of Christ appears in its beauty and power, when it appears as in Jesus. The corrupt nature is called a man; like the human body, it is of divers parts, supporting and strengthening one another. Sinfu desires are deceitful lusts; they promise men happiness, but rende them more miserable; and bring them to destruction, if not subdued an mortified. These therefore must be put off, as an old garment, a filth garment; they must be subdued and mortified. But it is not enough to shake off corrupt principles; we must have gracious ones. By the ne man, is meant the new nature, the new creature, directed by a ne principle, even regenerating grace, enabling a man to lead a new lif of righteousness and holiness. This is created, or brought forth by God's almighty power.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    22. That ye put away. Dependent upon ye were taught, and specifying the purport of the
    teaching.

    The old man. See on Rom. vi. 6. Compare Col. iii. 9.

    Which is corrupt (ton fqeiromenon). The A.V. misses the force of the participle. The verb is passive, which is being corrupted, 170 and marks the progressive condition of corruption which characterizes "the old man." Rev., correctly, waxeth corrupt.

    According to the deceitful lusts (kata tav epiqumiav thv apathv). Rev., correctly, lusts of deceit. On the vicious rendering of similar phrases in A.V., see on ch. i. 19. Deceit is personified.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:22 {That ye put away} (apoqesqai). Second aorist middle infinitive of apotiqemi with the metaphor of putting off clothing or habits as apoqesqe in #Col 3:8 (which see) with the same addition of "the old man" (ton palaion anqrwpon) as in #Col 3:9. For anastrofen (manner of life) see #Ga 1:13. {Which waxeth corrupt} (ton fqeiromenon). Either present middle or passive participle of fqeirw, but it is a process of corruption (worse and worse).
