    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:12

    ¶ Por esto, yo no dejar de amonestaros siempre de estas cosas, aunque vosotros las sepis, y estis confirmados en la verdad presente.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Peter 1:12

    Verse 12. Wherefore I will not be negligent] He had already written one
    epistle, this is the second; and probably he meditated more should he be spared. He plainly saw that there was no way of entering into eternal life but that which he described from the 5th to the 10th verse; and although they knew and were established in the present truth, yet he saw it necessary to bring these things frequently to their recollection.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 12. Wherefore I will not be negligent , etc.] The
    apostle having made use of proper arguments to excite the saints he writes to regard the exhortation he had given, to the diligent exercise of grace, and discharge of duty, proceeds to give the reasons of his own conduct, why he gave such an exhortation to them, and pressed it, and continued to do so, and determined for the future to go on with it, as particularly the usefulness and profitableness of it; and therefore, seeing it would be attended with so many advantages before mentioned, he was resolved that he would not be careless, nor omit any opportunity that should offer: to put you always in remembrance of these things ; of the exercise of the above graces, and the performance of the above duties, which saints are too apt to forget, and therefore should be reminded of; and it is the duty and business of the ministers of the word frequently to inculcate those things: though ye know them, and be established in the present truth ; for those that know the most, know but in part; and may have their knowledge increased; and those that are the most established in the truths of the Gospel, may be confirmed yet more and more. This the apostle mentions as an apology for himself, and to prevent an objection that might be made, as if he had suggested that they were ignorant and unstable; or which might insinuate that there was no necessity of such frequent putting in remembrance; since they were both knowing and stable: by the present truth may be meant, either the whole scheme of the Gospel, which was now come by Christ, in opposition to the exhibition of it under the former dispensation, by promise and type; and it being so called, shows that it is always now, and new; that there will be no alteration in it, nor addition to it, it being like the author of it, the same yesterday, today, and for ever, and will not give place to another scheme of things; or else the particular truth of the coming of Christ, either to take vengeance on the Jewish nation, or to judge the world in righteousness, and introduce his own people into the new heavens, and new earth, ( 2 Peter 3:1-4,10,12,13).

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-15 - We must be established in the belief of the
    truth, that we may not be shaken by every wind of doctrine; and especially in the truth necessar for us to know in our day, what belongs to our peace, and what is opposed in our time. The body is but a tabernacle, or tent, of the soul. It is a mean and movable dwelling. The nearness of death make the apostle diligent in the business of life. Nothing can so giv composure in the prospect, or in the hour, of death, as to know that we have faithfully and simply followed the Lord Jesus, and sought his glory. Those who fear the Lord, talk of his loving-kindness. This is the way to spread the knowledge of the Lord; and by the written word they are enabled to do this.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    12. I will not be negligent. The A.V. follows the
    reading oujk ajmelhsw, which it renders correctly. The better reading, however, is mellhsw, I intend, or, as often in classical Greek, with a sense of certainty - I shall be sure, which Rev. adopts, rendering I shall be ready. The formula occurs in but one other passage, Matt. xxiv. 6, where it is translated by the simple future, ye shall hear, with an implied sense, as ye surely will hear. Ye know (eidotav). Lit., knowing. Compare 1 Pet. i. 18.

    Established (esthrigmenouv). See on 1 Pet. v. 10. Perhaps the exhortation, "strengthen thy brethren," may account for his repeated used of this word and its derivatives. Thus, unstable (asthriktoi); steadfastness (sthrigmou), 2 Pet. iii. 16, 17.

    In the present truth (en th paroush alhqeia). I.e., the truth which is present with you through the instruction of your teachers; not the truth at present under consideration. See on ver. 9; and compare the same phrase in Col. i. 6, rendered, is come unto you.
