kuv´et ( אוה , 'āwāh ; ζηλόω , zēlóō , "to desire earnestly," "to set the heart and mind upon anything"): Used in two senses: good , simply to desire earnestly but legitimately. e.g. the King James Version 1 Corinthians 12:31; 1 Corinthians 14:39; bad , to desire unlawfully, or to secure illegitimately (בּצע , bāca‛ ; ἐπιθυμέω , epithuméō , Romans 7:7; Romans 13:9 , etc.); hence, called "lust" (Matthew 5:28; 1 Corinthians 10:6 ), "concupiscence" (the King James Version Romans 7:8; Colossians 3:5 ).
