News Item 123. Mishlei 14-30 (Envy)

A new segment has been posted to the Mishlei section today (Monday, March 9). This This proverb compares the emotion that gives rise to envy with its opposite, a good heart. The good heart is described as a healing heart since it brings well-being and healthful serenity. In contrast, envy is so self-destructive that it is viewed as rotting the person’s bones, the very aspects of his being that give him the strength to carry on in life.
