I found this quote from Calvin in another book. What Calvin book would I need to buy to get the original?

That, then is how our Lord Jesus bore the sins and iniquities of many. But in fact, the word “many” is often as good as equivalent to “all.” And indeed our Lord Jesus was offered to all the world. For it is not speaking of three or four when it says: “God so loved the world, that he spared not his only Son.” But yet we must notice what the Evangelist adds in this passage: “That whosoever believes in him shall not perish but obtain eternal life.” Our Lord Jesus suffered for all and there is neither great nor small who is inexcusable today, for we can obtain salvation in him. Unbelievers who turn away from him and who deprive themselves of him by their malice are today doubly culpable, for how will they excuse their ingratitude in not receiving the blessing in which they could share by faith?37 -- 37. Calvin, Sermons on Isaiah, 141, CO 35:679.
