CONSTITUTION OF THE HOLY APOSTLES

(A 2nd century compilation of the teachings of the 12 Apostles)

 

 

COVETOUSNESS

Abstain from unlawful desires.  It is written:  "Thou shalt not desire thy neighbor's wife, nor his field, nor his servants, nor his ox; for coveting of these things is from the evil one.  If you covet your neighbor's wife you are an adulterer in mind; if you covet his things you are a thief.  If you do not repent, you shall be condemned.

To those  obedient to God, obey one law, simple, true and living, which is this:  "Do not do to another which thou hatest another should do to thee."  You would not want any one to look upon your wife with an evil design to corrupt her;  do not thou, therefore, look upon they neighbor's wife with a wicked intention.  You would not wish your property should be taken away; do not take away another's.  You do not wish to be accused falsely, lied about, affronted, do not treat any other in like manner.
