“More specifically, eschatology now gives greater intensity to the exhortation, so that one occasionally speaks of a watchman’s cry” (Commentary on Romans, p. 362; comments on 11-14; compare J. Weiss, “Beitrage,” 245; Michel; Balz, TDNT, VIII, 554).

Grabner-Haider
“Certainly it is apparent here (Romans 13:11, CG) that imminent expectation was originally the basis of Christian admonition” (Paraklese, 108ff.).
