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 ).
