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.
