2 Peter 1:12-15 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

12 For which thing I shall begin to admonish you evermore of these things; and I will that ye be knowing, and confirmed in this present truth.

13 Forsooth I deem justly [Forsooth I deem just], as long as I am in this tabernacle, to raise you in admonishing;

14 and I am certain, that the putting away [for the putting off] of my tabernacle is swift, by this that our Lord Jesus Christ hath showed to me.

15 But I shall give busyness, that oft after my death ye have mind of these things.

2 Peter 1:12-15 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

12 And so I will not be negligent to put you always in mind of such things, though you know them yourselves, and are also established in the present truth. 13 Notwithstanding, I think it right, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance. 14 For I am sure that the time is at hand that I must put off my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ has shown me. 15 I will do my best to ensure, therefore, that on every side you have something with which to stir up the remembrance of these things after my departing.

2 Peter 1:12-15 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

12 [a]Wherefore, I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though that ye have knowledge, and be established in the present truth.

13 For I think it meet as long as I am in this [b]tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance,

14 Seeing I know that the time is at hand that I must lay down this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath showed me.

15 I will endeavor therefore always, that ye also may be able to have remembrance of these things after my departing.

12 Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things, though ye know them, and be established in the present truth. 13 Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle, to stir you up by putting you in remembrance; 14 knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me. 15 Moreover I will endeavour that ye may be able after my decease to have these things always in remembrance.
