Colossians 3:8 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

Put off (ἀπόθεσθε)

Compare Romans 13:12; Ephesians 4:22, Ephesians 4:25; Hebrews 12:1; James 1:21; 1 Peter 2:1.

Anger, wrath (ὀργὴν, θυμὸν)

See on John 3:36.

Malice (κακίαν)

See on naughtiness, James 1:21.

Blasphemy (βλασφημίαν)

See on Mark 7:22. Compare Romans 3:8; Romans 14:16; 1 Corinthians 4:13; Ephesians 4:31. Rev. railing.

Filthy communication (αἰσχρολογίαν)

Only here in the New Testament. Not merely filthy talking, as A.V., but foul-mouthed abuse. Rev., shameful speaking.

Out of your mouth

Construe with the preceding word. As Colossians 2:20-22 suggests Christ's words in Matthew 15:1-20, this phrase suggests Matthew 15:11, Matthew 15:18.
