Exodus 20:17: THE LORD COMMANDS
“You shall not covet your neighbor's house; YOU SHALL NOT COVET YOUR NEIGHBORS WIFE, or his male servant, or his female servant, or his ox, or his donkey, or anything that is your neighbor's.”

The word "covet" was translated from חמד, which means "to desire" implying wanting to possess. This indicates that the meaning is more broad than lust.
