Did 16:2b

Gather together frequently, seeking the things that benefit your souls, for all the time you have believed will be of no use to you if you are not found perfect in the last time.

πυκνῶς δὲ συναχθήσεσθε ζητοῦντες τὰ ἀνήκοντα ταῖς ψυχαῖς ὑμῶν· οὐ γὰρ ὠφελήσει ὑμᾶς ὁ πᾶς χρόνος τῆς πίστεως ὑμῶν, ἐὰν μὴ ἐν τῷ ἐσχάτῳ καιρῷ τελειωθῆτε. (Didache 16:2 AF-T)

Barn 4:9

(Though I would like to write a great deal more, not as a teacher but as befits one who does not like to leave out anything we possess, nevertheless I hasten to move along—your devoted servant.)

Consequently, let us be on guard in the last days, for the whole time of our faith will do us no good unless now, in the age of lawlessness, we also resist, as befits God’s children, the coming stumbling blocks, lest the black one find an opportunity to sneak in.

πολλὰ δὲ θέλων γράφειν, οὐχ ὡς διδάσκαλος ἀλλ᾿ ὡς πρέπει ἀγαπῶντι ἀφ᾿ ὧν ἔχομεν μὴ ἐλλείπειν, γράφειν ἐσπούδασα _ περίψημα ὑμῶν. Διὸ προσέχωμεν ἐν ταῖς ἐσχάταις ἡμέραις, οὐδὲν γὰρ ὠφελήσει ἡμᾶς ὁ πᾶς χρόνος τῆς ⸂ πίστεως ἡμῶν ⸃, ἐὰν μὴ νῦν ἐν τῷ ἀνόμῳ καιρῷ καὶ τοῖς μέλλουσιν σκανδάλοις, ὡς πρέπει υἱοῖς θεοῦ, ἀντιστῶμεν, ˹ ἵνα μὴ σχῇ παρείσδυσιν ὁ μέλας.” (Barnabas 4:9 AF-T)
