Envy

Envy is an "invisible" sin and is easily hidden. To covet or desire anotherís good fortunes
or possessions. Envy may come to a point that the strong desire for anotherís possessions
becomes an idol to them, which is forbidden by the Ten Commandments.


Deuteronomy
005:021 Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour's wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour's house,
his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour's.
1 Corinthians
003:003 For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye
not carnal, and walk as men?
010:024 Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth.
013:004 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed
up,
013:005 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
James
003:014 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
003:015 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
003:016 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
004:005 Do ye think that the scripture saith in vain, The spirit that dwelleth in us lusteth to envy? 
Galatians
005:019 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness,
lasciviousness,
005:020 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
005:021 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I
have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
005:025 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
005:026 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
Ecclesiastes
004:004 Again, I considered all travail, and every right work, that for this a man is envied of his
neighbour. This is also vanity and vexation of spirit.
Job
005:002 For wrath killeth the foolish man, and envy slayeth the silly one.
Proverbs
003:031 Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.
023:017 Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of the LORD all the day long.
023:018 For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.
024:001 Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them.
024:002 For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief.
027:004 Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy?
Romans
013:013 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and
wantonness, not in strife and envying.
013:014 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts
thereof.
Titus
003:003 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and
pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
003:004 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,
003:005 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us,
by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
Luke
012:022 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye
shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.
012:023 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.
