11You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
10Then he said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord.
Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
22Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.
17 for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
2My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.
1 Peter 1:8–9
8whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory, 9receiving the end of
your faith—the salvation of your souls
