This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

They that are Christ's (οἱ δὲ τοῦ Χριστοῦ)

The best texts add Ἱησοῦ they that are of Christ Jesus. Belong to him. The exact phrase only here. But see 1Co 1:12; 1Co 3:23; 1Co 15:23; 2Co 10:7, Gal 3:29.

Have crucified the flesh (τὴν σάρκα ἐσταύρωσαν)

The phrase only here. Comp. Gal 2:20; Gal 6:14; Rom 6:6. The line of thought as regards death to sin is the same as in Rom 6:2-7, Rom 6:11; as regards death to the law, the same as in Rom 7:1-6.

Affections (παθήμασιν)

Better, passions. Often sufferings, as Rom 8:18; 2Co 1:5, 2Co 1:6, 2Co 1:7; Phi 3:10; Heb 2:9. Often of Christ's sufferings. Comp. passions of sins, Rom 7:5 (see on motions). olxx, where we find πάθος in both senses, but mostly sufferings. Πάθος also in N.T., but rarely and Po. See Rom 1:26; Col 3:5; 1Th 4:5 : always of evil desires.
