Envy more than simply wanting what belongs to others. It often goes to the extreme of wanting "x" to be taken away from them. my heart means I functionally believe that God is not good to me, though I may say so with my lips. ugly

...destroys friendships or hinders them from beginning in the first place

...leads to murder, certainly in the heart, sometimes also by our hands

Envy never produces more trust in God or more active love for others. Envy is vertically dissatisfied and horizontally discompassionate.
