They are but barren grass…

Provided we not only dwell in the Church of the Lord, but also labor to have a place among the number of her genuine citizens, we will be able fearlessly to despise all the might of our enemies: for although they may flourish and have a great outward show for a time, yet they are but barren grass, on which the curse of heaven rests.

Calvin, Commentary on the Book of Psalms, V:127
