What did people say instead of "deadline" before the 1860s, or did no one have to get anything done?

I'm actually pretty curious about this. Not curious enough to drop work and try and research it, but if you know I'd really appreciate an answer!

@boisdevache Going all the way back to the Old Testament, what was used during that era was the term "appointed time"
