Justin Martyr, Dialogue 76.4-5:

Ηξουσιν απο ανατολων και δυσμων, και ανακλιθησονται μετα Αβρααμ και Ισαακ και Ιακωβ εν τη βασιλεια των ουρανων· οι δε υιοι της βασιλειας εκβληθησονται εις το σκοτος το εξωτερον, και· Πολλοι ερουσι μοι τη ημερα εκεινη· Κυριε, κυριε, ου τω σω ονοματι εφαγομεν και επιομεν και προεφητευσαμεν και δαιμονια εξεβαλομεν; και ερω αυτοις· Αναχωρειτε απ εμου. και εν αλλοις λογοις, οις καταδικαζειν τους αναξιους μη σωζεσθαι μελλει, εφη ερειν· Υπαγετε εις το σκοτος το εξωτερον, ο ητοιμασεν ο πατηρ τω Σατανα και τοις αγγελοις αυτου.

[Jesus said:] They shall come from the east and west, and they shall recline with Abraham and Isaac and Jacob in the kingdom of the heavens; but the sons of the kingdom shall be cast out into the outer darkness, and: Many shall say to me on that day: Lord, Lord, have we not eaten and drunk and prophesied and cast out demons in your name? And I will say to them: Depart from me. And in other words, by which he is about to condemn those who are unworthy to be saved, he said: Get into the outer darkness, which the father has made ready for Satan and his angels.
