    He envies

    Hi guys,

    Is it correct to say "He envies your job or body or etc"?

    Re: He envies

    "He is envious of your job" should work too.

    Not a teacher.

    I am not a teacher.

    This is also correct without the preposition "for".

    He envies you your job.
    He envies you your body.
