Usage of “envy”
I have seen this construction of “envy” used before and it seems wrong to me. Examples:
“I also don’t envy you the probable consequences of this.”
“I do not envy David the frustration he’ll experience.”
These seem completely wrong to me, but were written by a very grammatically-correct person. I am therefore confused. Are the above constructions right or wrong? If they are correct, what makes them correct?
