This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

New (νέον)

See on Mat 26:29. Compare Eph 5:24.

Is renewed (ἀνακαινούμενον)

Rev., better, giving the force of the present participle, is being renewed: in process of continuous renewal. The word καινός new, which enters into the composition of the verb, gives the idea of quality. Compare 2Co 4:16, and the contrast in Eph 4:22.

In knowledge (εἰς ἐπίγνωσιν)

Rev., correctly, unto knowledge, the end to which the renewal tended. Compare Eph 4:13.

After the image

Construe with renewed. Compare Eph 4:24, and see Gen 1:26, Gen 1:27.
