New International Version
I think it is right to refresh your memory as long as I live in the tent of this body,
King James Bible
Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;

But I account it right, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting [you] in remembrance,
World English Bible
I think it right, as long as I am in this tent, to stir you up by reminding you;
Young's Literal Translation
and I think right, so long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up in reminding you,
2 Peter 1:13 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
As long as I am in this tabernacle - By tabernacle we are to understand his body; and hence several of the versions have σωματι, body, instead of σκηνωματι, tabernacle.

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.

LibraryLike Precious Faith
'... Them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ.'--2 Peter i. 1. Peter seems to have had a liking for that word 'precious.'

2 Corinthians 5:4
For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed instead with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life.
It is right for me to feel this way about all of you, since I have you in my heart and, whether I am in chains or defending and confirming the gospel, all of you share in God's grace with me.
I want to know Christ--yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,
2 Peter 1:14
because I know that I will soon put it aside, as our Lord Jesus Christ has made clear to me.
2 Peter 3:1
Dear friends, this is now my second letter to you. I have written both of them as reminders to stimulate you to wholesome thinking.
