Col. 2:14…. Was the Torah Blotted out and Nailed to the Cross?

KING JAMES VERSION:

Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances
that was against us, 
which was contrary to us,
and took it out of the way,
nailing it to his cross.
(Col. 2:14 KJV)

 

AMERICAN NEW STANDARD:

having cancelled out the certificate of debt 
consisting of decrees against us 
and which was hostile to us; 
and he has taken it out of the way, 
having nailed it to the cross.
(Col. 2:14 NAS)

 

ORIGINAL ARAMATIC:

He has blotted out, by His commandments, 
the handwriting of our debts 
which were against us, 
and He took from the midst 
and fastened it on His gallows.
(Col. 2:14 HRV)

 

In the original Aramaic Paul is actually saying that it is by the Torah that “the handwriting of our debts 
which were against us” were blotted out.  In both the Aramaic and the Greek it is not the Torah which was blotted out in Col. 2:14, but the record of our sins.
