Envy is meaningless. Flattering lips and insincere hearts are vain. Turn your eyes from useless things. In vain boasting they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through lewdness. In vain discussions they shun, profane, and have idle babblings. In the vanity of the nations, the nations rage, and the people plot vain things. Wealth is meaningless for he who loves silver will not be satisfied with silver; nor he who loves abundance, with increase.
Envy is meaningless (vain)
Ecclesiastes 4:4 4 Again, I saw that for all toil and every skillful work a man is envied by his neighbor. This also is vanity and grasping for the wind.

Turn eyes from worthless things

2 Timothy 2:16 16 But shun profane and idle babblings, for they will increase to more ungodliness.

Vanity of nations
Acts 4:25 25 who by the mouth of Your servant David have said:
‘Why did the nations rage,
And the people plot vain things?
Wealth is meaningless (Vain)
Ecclesiastes 5:10 10 He who loves silver will not be satisfied with silver; Nor he who loves abundance, with increase. This also is vanity.
