4124 pleoneksía (a feminine noun derived from 4119/pleíōn, "numerically more" and 2192/éxō, "have") – properly, the desire for more (things), lusting for a greater number of temporal things.  These go beyond what God determines is eternally best, i.e. beyond His preferred-will (cf. 2307/thélēma); covetousness (coveting).
