    I have a freind consumed with jealousy. I am going to meet with her tonight and would like some scripture to back me up on how this is sinful. She's not really interested in the Bible but I still would like to show her anyways. It's always worth a try!
    I am at work so I can't look at a Bible right now. Can you all share some scripture with me regarding jealousy? Thanks a bunch.
