    SEV Biblia, Chapter 1:15

    Tambin yo procurar con diligencia, que despus de mi fallecimiento, vosotros podis tener memoria de estas cosas.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Peter 1:15

    Verse 15. Moreover, I will endeavour] And is not this endeavour seen in these two
    epistles? By leaving these among them, even after his decease, they had these things always in remembrance.

    After my decease] meta thn emhn exodon? After my going out, i.e. of his tabernacle. The real Peter was not open to the eye, nor palpable to the touch; he was concealed in that tabernacle vulgarly supposed to be Peter.

    There is a thought very similar to this in the last conversation of Socrates with his friends. As this great man was about to drink the poison to which he was condemned by the Athenian judges, his friend CRITO said, "But how would you be buried?-SOCRATES: Just as you please, if you can but catch me, and I do not elude your pursuit. Then, gently smiling, he said: I cannot persuade Crito, wv egw eimi outov o swkrathv o nuni dialegomevov, that I AM that Socrates who now converses with you; but he thinks that I am he, on oyetai oligon usteron nekron, kai erwta pwv edi me qaptein, whom he shall shortly see dead; and he asks how I would be buried? I have asserted that, after I have drunk the poison, I should no longer remain with you, but shall depart to certain felicities of the blessed." PLATONIS Phaedo, Oper., vol. i, edit. Bipont., p 260.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 15. Moreover, I will endeavour , etc.] He signifies, that he should not only use all diligence to stir them up to, and put them in remembrance of the necessary duties of their calling while he was alive, but should make it his study to concert some measures, and take some steps, that you may be able after my decease : or Exodus, meaning his going out of this world by death, in allusion to the Israelites going out of Egypt, and marching for Canaan's land; this world being, like Egypt, a place of wickedness, misery, and bondage; as heaven, like Canaan, a place and state of rest and happiness. To have these things always in remembrance ; by which they might be always put in mind of them, or by recurring to which they might have their memories refreshed; and what he means is, to leave these exhortations and admonitions in writing, which they might read, and be of use to them when he was dead and gone; and indeed by this, and his former epistle, though being dead, he yet speaketh.

    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.

    Greek Textus Receptus

    4704 5692 δε 1161 και 2532 εκαστοτε 1539 εχειν 2192 5721 υμας 5209 μετα 3326 την 3588 εμην 1699 εξοδον 1841 την 3588 τουτων 5130 μνημην 3420 ποιεισθαι 4160 5733

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    15. Ye may be able (ecein umav). Lit., that you may have it. A similar use of have, in the sense of to be able, occurs
    Mark xiv. 8. The same meaning is also foreshadowed in Matt. xviii. 25, had not to pay; and John viii. 6, have to accuse.

    Decease (exodon). Exod. is a literal transcript of the word, and is the term used by Luke in his account of the transfiguration. "They spake of his decease." It occurs only once elsewhere, Heb. xi. 22, in the literal sense, the departing or exodus of the children of Israel. "It is at least remarkable," says Dean Alford, "that, with the recollection of the scene on the mount of transfiguration floating in his mind, the apostle should use so close together the words which were there also associated, tabernacle and decease. The coincidence should not be forgotten in treating of the question of the genuineness of the epistle."

    Call to remembrance (mnhmnh poieisqai). The phrase occurs nowhere else in the New Testament. In classical Greek, to make mention of. An analogous expression is found, Rom. i. 9, mneian poioumai, I make mention. See, also, Eph. i. 16; 1 Thess. i. 2; Philemon 4. Some render it thus here, as expressing Peter's desire to make it possible for his readers to report these things to others. Rev., to call these things to remembrance.
