Evil could be present regardless

 

Peter C. Craigie

Peter C. Craigie

“Coveting, or the harboring and nourishing of desirous thoughts, may culminate in murder, adultery, theft, and false witness; the latter crimes may indeed be prosecuted, but the real evil lies initially in the desire leading to the crimes, and the evil could be present regardless of whether or not the desire resulted in an act.”  ~  Peter C. Craigie The Problem of War in the Old Testament
