2 Peter 1:13

I think it right (dikaion hgoumai). Peter considers this to be his solemn duty, "right" (dikaion). Cf. Philippians 3:1; Ephesians 6:1.

So long as (ef oson). For this phrase see Matthew 9:15; Romans 11:13.

Tabernacle (skhnwmati). Old word, in literal sense in Deuteronomy 33:18 for the usual skhnh (Peter's word at the Transfiguration, Mark 9:5), earliest use (in N.T. only here, verse II Peter 1:14; Acts 7:46 of the tabernacle of the covenant) in this metaphorical sense of life as a pilgrimage (I Peter 1:1; I Peter 2:11), though Paul has skhnov, so in II Corinthians 5:1, II Corinthians 5:4. Peter feels the nearness of death and the urgency upon him.

To stir you up (diegeirein umav). Present active infinitive of diegeirw, late (Arist., Hippocr., Herodian, papyri), perfective (dia = thoroughly) compound, to wake out of sleep (Mark 4:39), "to keep on rousing you up."

By putting you in remembrance (en upomnhsei). Old word, from upomimnhskw (verse II Peter 1:12), in N.T. only here, II Peter 3:1; II Timothy 1:5. "By way of reminding you."
