Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;

And it is only right that I should keep on reminding you as long as I live.

What does 2 Peter 1:13 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Peter 1:13

Yea, I think it meet
Or "just". This is the apostle's other reason for his conduct, taken from the duty of his place and office; judging it to be what became him as an apostle and elder, and the minister of the circumcision, and was what was due to God and Christ, whom he served, and the souls of men under his care:

as long as I am in this tabernacle:
or "body", as the Syriac and Ethiopic versions render it, and so some copies; for the body is as a tabernacle for the soul to dwell in, pitched for a time, and, ere long, to be taken down; (See Gill on 2 Corinthians 5:1),

to stir you up;
to the lively exercise of grace, and constant performance of duty: by putting you in remembrance: of the said things; for saints are apt to be forgetful of their duty, and backward to it, and sluggish and slothful in it.
