2 Peter 1:14

The putting off of my tabernacle (h apoqesiv tou skhnnwmatov mou). For apoqesiv see on I Peter 3:21 and for skhnwma verse II Peter 1:13. For the metaphor see II Corinthians 5:3 f.

Cometh swiftly (taxinh estin). Late adjective (Theocritus, LXX, inscription), in N.T. only here and II Peter 2:1. It is not clear whether taxinov means soon or speedy as in Isaiah 59:7 and like taxuv in James 1:19, or sudden, like taxuv in Plato (Republ. 553 D). Either sense agrees with the urgent tone of Peter here, whether he felt his death to be near or violent or both.

Signified unto me (edhlwsen moi). First aorist active indicative of dhlow, old verb (from delov), as in I Peter 1:11. Peter refers to the incident told in John 21:18 f., which he knew by personal experience before John wrote it down.
