  • Envy

    For wrath killeth the foolish man, and envy slayeth the silly one. Job 5:2

    Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Psalms 37:1,2

    Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways. For the froward is abomination to יהוה: but his secret is with the righteous. Proverbs 3:31,32
    A sound heart is the life of the flesh: but envy the rottenness of the bones. Proverbs 14:30
    Let not thine heart envy sinners: but be thou in the fear of יהוה all the day long. For surely there is an end; and thine expectation shall not be cut off. Proverbs 23:17
    Be not thou envious against evil men, neither desire to be with them. For their heart studieth destruction, and their lips talk of mischief. Proverbs 24:1,2
    Fret not thyself because of evil men, neither be thou envious at the wicked; For there shall be no reward to the evil man; the candle of the wicked shall be put out. Proverbs 24:19.20
    Wrath is cruel, and anger is outrageous; but who is able to stand before envy? Proverbs 27:4

    Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. Romans 13:13

    Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 1 Corinthians 13:4

    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. Galatians 5:21

    But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. James 3:14-16

    Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: 1 Peter 2:1,2
