with the fatness of their neighbor.

but a torment to themselves.

You shall not covet your neighbor’s house;
you shall not covet your neighbor’s wife,
nor his male servant, nor his female servant,
nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor’s.
- Exodus 20:17

A good life isn't measured in material goods.
There is no quicker path to misery than coveting your neighbors' stuff.
