SEV Biblia, Chapter 5:24

Porque los que son del Cristo, han colgado en el madero a la carne con sus afectos y concupiscencias.

Clarke's Bible Commentary - Galatians 5:24

Verse 24. And they that are
Christ's] All genuine Christians have crucified the flesh - are so far from obeying its dictates and acting under its influence, that they have crucified their sensual appetites; they have nailed them to the cross of Christ, where they have expired with him; hence, says St. Paul, Rom. vi. 6, our old man - the flesh, with its affections and lusts, is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. By which we see that God has fully designed to save all who believe in Christ from all sin, whether outward or inward, with all the affections, paqhmasi, irregular passions, and lusts, epiqumiaiv, disorderly wishes and desires. All that a man may feel contrary to love and purity; and all that he may desire contrary to moderation and that self-denial peculiar to the Christian character.

John Gill's Bible Commentary

Ver. 24. And they that are
Christ's , etc..] Not all as yet that are secretly so, who are chosen in him, and by him, are given by the Father to him in covenant, and whom he has purchased by his blood, and considers as his people, his sheep, and his children, though as yet they are not called by his grace; of these, as yet, what follows cannot be said, and therefore must mean such as are openly Christ's, whom he has laid hold on as his own in the effectual calling, who have his Spirit as a spirit of regeneration and sanctification, who have truly believed in Christ, and have given up themselves unto him. Have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts : by the flesh is meant, not the natural body to be macerated and afflicted with fastings, watchings, etc.. but the corruption of nature, the old man and carnal heart. The Vulgate Latin version reads, their own flesh; and so do the Syriac and Ethiopic versions; their concern lying with their own, and not with the corruptions, affections, and lusts of others. By the affections and lusts are intended, not the natural affections and passions of the soul, and the desires of it; but its vile and inordinate affections, its corrupt inclinations, evil desires, and deceitful lusts; all which are crucified first with Christ, as the Arabic version reads; (see Romans 6:6) and which are so abolished, done away, and destroyed, by the sacrifice of Christ, that the damning power of them over his people is entirely gone. And in consequence of this crucifixion of the body of sin, with Christ upon the cross, when he finished and made an end of it, sin, with its passions and lusts, is crucified by the Spirit of God in regeneration and sanctification; so that it loses its governing power, and has not the dominion it had before: not but that the flesh, or corrupt nature, with its evil affections, and carnal lusts, are still in being, and are alive; as a person fastened to a cross may be alive, though he cannot act and move as before, being under restraints, so the old man, though crucified, and under the restraints of mighty grace, and cannot reign and govern as before, yet is alive, and acts, and operates, and oftentimes has great sway and influence; but whereas he is deprived of his reigning power, he is said to be crucified: and though this act is ascribed to them that are Christ's, yet not as done by them in their own strength, who are not able to grapple with one corruption, but as under the influence of the grace of Christ, and through the power of his Spirit; (see Romans 8:13).

Matthew Henry Commentary

Verses 16-26 - If it be our care to act under the guidance and power of the blesse Spirit, though we may not be freed from the stirrings and opposition of the
corrupt nature which remains in us, it shall not have dominio over us. Believers are engaged in a conflict, in which they earnestl desire that grace may obtain full and speedy victory. And those wh desire thus to give themselves up to be led by the Holy Spirit, are no under the law as a covenant of works, nor exposed to its awful curse Their hatred of sin, and desires after holiness, show that they have part in the salvation of the gospel. The works of the flesh are man and manifest. And these sins will shut men out of heaven. Yet what numbers, calling themselves Christians, live in these, and say the hope for heaven! The fruits of the Spirit, or of the renewed nature which we are to do, are named. And as the apostle had chiefly name works of the flesh, not only hurtful to men themselves, but tending to make them so to one another, so here he chiefly notices the fruits of the Spirit, which tend to make Christians agreeable one to another, a well as to make them happy. The fruits of the Spirit plainly show, tha such are led by the Spirit. By describing the works of the flesh an fruits of the Spirit, we are told what to avoid and oppose, and what we are to cherish and cultivate; and this is the sincere care an endeavour of all real Christians. Sin does not now reign in their mortal bodies, so that they obey it, Ro 6:12, for they seek to destro it. Christ never will own those who yield themselves up to be the servants of sin. And it is not enough that we cease to do evil, but we must learn to do well. Our conversation will always be answerable to the principle which guides and governs us, Ro 8:5. We must se ourselves in earnest to mortify the deeds of the body, and to walk in newness of life. Not being desirous of vain-glory, or unduly wishin for the esteem and applause of men, not provoking or envying on another, but seeking to bring forth more abundantly those good fruits which are, through Jesus Christ, to the praise and glory of God __________________________________________________________________

Vincent's NT Word Studies

24. They that are
Christ's (oi de tou Cristou). The best texts add Ihsou they that are of Christ Jesus. Belong to him. The exact phrase only here. But see 1 Cor. i. 12; iii. 23; xv. 23; 2 Cor. x. 7, Gal. iii. 29.

Have crucified the flesh (thn sarka estaurwsan). The phrase only here. Comp. ch. ii. 20; vi. 14; Rom. vi. 6. The line of thought as regards death to sin is the same as in Rom. vi. 2-7, 11; as regards death to the law, the same as in Rom. vii. 1-6.

Affections (paqhmasin). Better, passions. Often sufferings, as Romans viii. 18; 2 Cor. i. 5, 6, 7; Philip. iii. 10; Heb. ii. 9. Often of Christ's sufferings. Comp. passions of sins, Rom. vii. 5 (see on motions). o LXX, where we find paqov in both senses, but mostly sufferings. Paqov also in N.T., but rarely and P o . See Rom. i. 26; Col. iii. 5; 1 Thessalonians iv. 5: always of evil desires.

Robertson's NT Word Studies

5:24 {Crucified the flesh} (ten sarka estaurwsan). Definite event, first aorist active indicative of staurow as in #2:19 (mystical union with Christ). Paul uses sarx here in the same sense as in verses #16,17,19, "the force in men that makes for evil" (Burton). {With} (sun). "Together with," emphasizing "the completeness of the extermination of this evil force" and the guarantee of victory over one's passions and dispositions toward evil.
