    Clarke's Commentary on Colossians 2:13

    And you, being dead in your sins - See the notes on Ephesians 2:1, etc.

    The uncircumcision of your flesh - This must refer to that part of the Colossian Church which was made up of converted heathens, for the heathens alone were uncircumcised.

    Barnes' Notes on Colossians 2:13

    And you, being dead in your sins - Notes, Ephesians 2:1.

    And the uncircumcision of your flesh - That is, Gentiles, and giving unrestrained indulgence to the desires of the flesh. They lived as those who had not by any religious rite or covenant brought themselves under obligations to lead holy lives.

    Hath he quickened - Notes, Ephesians 2:1.

    Together with him - In virtue of his being restored to life. That is, the resurrection of the Lord Jesus was the means of imparting to us spiritual life.

    Wesley's Notes on Colossians 2:13

    2:13 And you who were dead - Doubly dead to God, not only wallowing in trespasses, outward sins, but also in the uncircumcision of your flesh - A beautiful expression for original sin, the inbred corruption of your nature, your uncircumcised heart and affections. Hath he - God the Father. Quickened together with him - Making you partakers of the power of his resurrection. It is evident the apostle thus far speaks, not of justification, but of sanctification only.
