Therefore my heart is glad & my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure,10 because you will not abandoned to the realm of the dead, nor will you let your faithful one see decay.
The precepts of The Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of The Lord are radiant, giving light to my eyes.
The Lord is my strength & my shield; my heart trusts in him, & I am helped. My heart leaps for joy & I will give thanks to him in song.
With joy, you will draw water from the wells of salvation.
The Lord has done great things for us, & we are filled with joy.
If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands & remain in his love. 11 I have told you this so that my joy may be in you & that your joy may be complete.
For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating & drinking, but of righteousness, peace & joy in the Holy Spirit,
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23 gentlenesses & self-control. Against such things, there is no law.
There is deceit in the hearts of those who plot evil, but joy for those who promote peace.
1 Peter 1:8-9
Though you have not seen him, you love him; & even though you do not see him now, you believe in him & are filled with an inexpressible & glorious joy, 9 for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
