Alert readers will have noticed that in the Bible stories of envy, the writers talk explicitly not of envy but of anger. Thus, when God blessed Abel, "Cain was very angry." When the Israelite women sang to one another "Saul has killed his thousands, and David his ten thousands" the writer adds tersely that "Saul was very angry, for this saying displeased him."
