    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:14

    sabiendo que brevemente tengo que dejar este mi tabernculo, como nuestro Seor Jess el Cristo me ha declarado.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Peter 1:14

    Verse 14. Knowing that shortly I must put off] St. Peter plainly refers to the conversation between our
    Lord and himself, related John xxi. 18, 19.

    And it is likely that he had now a particular intimation that he was shortly to seal the truth with his blood. But as our Lord told him that his death would take place when he should be old, being aged now he might on this ground fairly suppose that his departure was at hand.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 14. Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle , etc.] Which is another reason why the apostle was so pressing in this case, and so much urged the exhortation, and was so diligent in reminding the saints of it, and stirring them to observe it, because he knew he had but a little time to live, and which therefore he was willing to improve for their good.

    He sets forth his death in a very easy and familiar way, it being not at all terrible and distressing to him; it was but like the putting off of a garment, or unpinning of a tabernacle, or a removing from a tent to a palace. Saints are pilgrims here, they dwell in tents or tabernacles, at death they remove to their own country, and Father's house. Death is not a destruction of man, an annihilation of him, neither of his soul nor body: the soul is not mortal, it dies not with the body; it only removes from this world to another, from a cottage to a kingdom; and the body though it dies, it is not reduced to nothing, it is only like a tabernacle put off, or taken down, which will be put together again in better order than now it is. Even as our Lord Jesus hath showed me ; by some special revelation lately made to him; or by some strong impulse upon his mind; just as the Apostle Paul knew that the time of his departure was at hand, ( 2 Timothy 4:7) or this may have respect to the words of Christ to Peter, above thirty years before, in ( John 21:18), which both signified what kind of death he should die, and when it should be; namely, when he was old, as now he was.


    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

    14. Shortly I must put off this my
    tabernacle (tacinh estin h apoqwsiv tou skhnwmatov mou). Lit., quick is the putting off of my tabernacle. Rev., the putting off of my tabernacle cometh swiftly. Possibly in allusion to his advanced age. Putting off is a metaphor, from putting off a garment. So Paul, 2 Cor. v. 3, 4, being clothed, unclothed, clothed upon. The word occurs, also, 1 Pet. iii. 21, and is used by Peter only. Cometh swiftly, implying the speedy approach of death; though others understand it of the quick, violent death which Christ prophesied he should die. "Even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath showed me." See John xxi. 18, 19. Compare, also, John xiii. 36, and note the word follow in both passages. "Peter had now learnt the full force of Christ's sayings, and to what end the following of Jesus was to bring him" (Lumby).

    Hath shewed (edhlwsen). But the tense is the aorist, pointing back to a definite act at a past time (John xxi. 18). Hence, shewed me, or, as Rev., signified. Compare 1 Pet. i. 11, did signify.
