Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbors wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor anything that is thy neighbor’s.
By house is meant all good in general; by wife all truth in general; by manservant, the affection of spiritual truth; by maidservant, the affection of spiritual good; by ox, the affection of natural good; and by ass, the affection of natural truth. These are the things which are not to be coveted, that is, which are not to be taken away from anyone, or to which, harm or injury must not be done.
D&C:117 that you should covet ( yearning for, of the will) that which is but the drop, and neglect the more weighty matters?
