From Calvin’s Third Sermon on Psalm 119: GIMEL

They which make their continual nest here according to their own fancy, and think to make their heaven in this world, these men I say, have nothing to do with the commandments of God for their salvation. For they are safe enough if they may eat and drink to be glutted, that they may take their pleasures and delights, that they may be honored, that they may be in estimation and credit, lo here is all that they desire or wish to have. Yea forsooth [in truth]: For they look no further, but to this corruptible and transitory life.
