Envy
Romans 1:28-32 “…even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
Galatians 5:19-21 “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, 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.”
I Timothy 6:3-8 “If anyone is teaching differently and is not approaching with sound words, even those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the teaching in accord with devoutness, he is conceited, versed in nothing, but morbid about questionings and controversies, out of which is coming envy, strife, calumnies, wicked suspicions, altercations of men of a decadent mind and deprived of the truth, inferring that devoutness is capital. Now devoutness with contentment is great capital; for nothing do we carry into the world, and it is evident that neither can we carry anything out. Now, having sustenance and protection against the weather, with these we shall be sufficed.”
Titus 3:3 “For we also were once foolish, stubborn, deceived, slaves of various desires and gratifications, leading a life in malice and envy, detestable, hating one another.”
Matthew 27:17-18; Mark 15:10 “At their having gathered, then, Pilate said to them, Whom are you wanting I should be releasing to you, Bar-Abbas, or Jesus, who is termed Christ? Are you wanting that I should be releasing to you the king of the Jews?, for he was aware that it was because of envy they give Him up.”
Philippians 1:15 “Some, indeed, are even heralding Christ because of envy and strife, yet some because of delight also.”
I Peter 2:1-3 “Therefore, putting aside all malice and all guile and hypocrisy and envy and all slander, like newborn babes, long for the pure milk of the word, that by it you may grow in respect to salvation, if you have tasted the kindness of the Lord.”
James 4:5 “…are you supposing that the scripture is saying this for naught? Is the spirit/Spirit which dwells in us longing to envy/jealousy? Yet greater is the grace He is giving. Wherefore He is saying, God the proud is resisting, yet to the humble He is giving grace. You may be subject, then, to God, yet withstand the Adversary, and he will be fleeing from you.”
