    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:13

    Porque tengo por justo, (en tanto que estoy en este tabernculo), de incitaros con amonestacin,

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Peter 1:13

    Verse 13. As
    long as I am in this tabernacle] By tabernacle we are to understand his body; and hence several of the versions have swmati, body, instead of skhnwmati, tabernacle. Peter's mode of speaking is very remarkable: as long as I AM in this tabernacle, so then the body was not Peter, but Peter dwelt in that body. Is not this a proof that St. Peter believed his soul to be very distinct from his body? As a man's house is the place where he dwells, so the body is the house where the soul dwells.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 13. Yea, I think it meet , etc.] Or just. This is the
    apostle's other reason for his conduct, taken from the duty of his place and office; judging it to be what became him as an apostle and elder, and the minister of the circumcision, and was what was due to God and Christ, whom he served, and the souls of men under his care: as long as I am in this tabernacle : or body, as the Syriac and Ethiopic versions render it, and so some copies; for the body is as a tabernacle for the soul to dwell in, pitched for a time, and, ere long, to be taken down; (see Gill on 2 Corinthians 5:1), to stir you up ; to the lively exercise of grace, and constant performance of duty: by putting you in remembrance: of the said things; for saints are apt to be forgetful of their duty, and backward to it, and sluggish and slothful in it.

    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

    13.
    Tabernacle (skhnwmati). A figurative expression for the body, used also by Paul, 2 Cor. v. 1, 4, though he employs the shorter kindred word skhnov. Peter also has the same mixture of metaphors which Paul employs in that passage, viz., building and clothing. See next verse. Peter's use of tabernacle is significant in connection with his words at the transfiguration, "Let us make three tabernacles (Matt. xvii. 4). The word, as well as the entire phrase, carries the idea of brief duration - a frail tent, erected for a night. Compare ver. 14.

    To stir you up by putting you in remembrance (diegeirein umav en upomnhsei). Lit., to stir you up in reminding. See the same phrase in ch. iii. 1.
