"You shall not covet your neighbour’s house; you shall not covet your neighbour’s wife, or male or female slave, or ox, or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbour."That's a pretty politically incorrect statement, but nonetheless, there is the Tenth Commandment. To covet something means to desire or long for, but that's not what the commandment is warning against. The commandment is warning against desiring or longing for something that doesn't belong to you, something that your neighbour has. We have another word for this that makes a bit more sense, envy.
