Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

2 Peter 1:15

_ _ endeavour — “use my diligence”: the same Greek word as in 2 Peter 1:10 : this is the field in which my diligence has scope. Peter thus fulfils Christ’s charge, “Feed My sheep” (John 21:16, John 21:17).

_ _ decease — “departure.” The very word (“exodus”) used in the Transfiguration, Moses and Elias conversing about Christ’s decease (found nowhere else in the New Testament, but Hebrews 11:22, “the departing of Israel” out of Egypt, to which the saints’ deliverance from the present bondage of corruption answers). “Tabernacle” is another term found here as well as there (Luke 9:31, Luke 9:33): an undesigned coincidence confirming Peter’s authorship of this Epistle.

_ _ that ye may be able — by the help of this written Epistle; and perhaps also of Mark’s Gospel, which Peter superintended.

_ _ alwaysGreek, “on each occasion”: as often as occasion may require.

_ _ to have ... in remembranceGreek, “to exercise remembrance of.” Not merely “to remember,” as sometimes we do, things we care not about; but “have them in (earnest) remembrance,” as momentous and precious truths.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 2 Peter 1:12-15.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

2 Peter 1:15

That ye may be able — By having this epistle among you.
