Wisdom of Solomon 12:10

But executing thy judgments upon them by little and little, thou gavest them place of repentance, not being ignorant that they were a naughty generation, and that their malice was bred in them, and that their cogitation would never be changed.

Clement Of Rome

AD 99
We look over all the generations, and we note that from generation to generation the Master "gave room for repentance" for all those who wanted to turn to him. Noah preached repentance, and all who listened to him were saved. Jonah predicted the destruction of the Ninevites, but, repentant for their sins, God looked favorably on them, and they received salvation, though they were foreigners to God. 1 - "Clement 7.5–7"

Didymus the Blind

AD 398
In the time of judgment, which is to say always, he judges everyone, sometimes calling this time the "time of judgment," sometimes "the day of wrath" and "the day of rendering account." "Until" this "punishment arrives," while "the punishment has not yet come," repent. There is "room for repentance." "The Lord does not delay in fulfilling his promise, as some believe, but is patient toward you, not wanting that anyone should perish but that all should come to repentance." Since therefore an extension is given to you for repentance, repent before "the punishment comes." - "On Ecclesiastes 12.1c"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
