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.
