Hello all users!

I envy you for your lovely car. We all envy you for your beautiful children.

Could the above sentences be as well written in the following manner?:

I envy you of your lovely car. We all envy you of your beautiful children.

I am used to seeing "envy" used with "of" rather than "for".

Maybe there are two ways of expressing the same thought.

Thank you.
