Hate Covetousness

Exodus 18:21
Moreover thou shalt provide out of all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness; and place [such] over them, [to be] rulers of thousands, [and] rulers of hundreds, rulers of fifties, and rulers of tens...

Covetousness is like greed, envy, and lust. It means wanting a thing that somebody else has.

"Men of truth, hating covetousness..." Do you hate covetousness? You should. "He that hateth covetousness..."

Proverbs 28:16
The prince that wanteth understanding [is] also a great oppressor: [but] he that hateth covetousness shall prolong [his] days.
