Roots

ENVY is first defined by Webster’s as resentful feelings from desire, then as “desire” itself.  Aleph-Bhet-Hey, A[V]aH means “desire, want” in the Ben-Yehudah dictionary.  It is rendered “willing” by the KJV in Genesis 24:5.  A clue that only a nasalization (added N) separated these two similar “desire” words is French envie, to wish, desire.  ENVY is even traced to Old French envie.

But Western etymologist needed a classical source, so they grasped onto Latin invidia, hatred, ill will.  This is from invidere, to look askance at, and ultimately videre, to look at.  The AHD thus cites their made-up root weid (to see) as the ludicrous root of ENVY.  For the Edenic source of this bilabial-dental root of seeing, see VIDEO.


Branches

Ignore the erroneous so-called cognates of ENVY.  Feel the Aleph-Bhet-Hey of desire intensify to AHa(V)aH (love) and to AVaH (lust).  The sound-alike built-in opposite is Aleph-Yod-Bhet-Hey, AY(V)aH    (hate, animosity – Genesis 3:15).
