In 1 Corinthians 12:31; 1 Corinthians 14:39 , the word is ζηλόω ,and is quite different fromthe coveting that is condemned in scripture; it is translated in Revelation 3:19 'be zealous,' and the above passages in Corinthians can be so translated, or 'desire earnestly' the best gifts, and 'desire earnestly' to prophesy.
