1 Corinthians 13:6
is never glad with sin; she's always glad to side with truth, and pleased that truth will win.
1 Corinthians 7:30
and those who mourn as though they did not mourn, and those who rejoice as though they were not rejoicing, and those who buy as though they did not own a thing,
"Yes, let that night be barren; let it not appear with its joyful shout.
Therefore the Lord does not have pity on their young men, and has no compassion on their orphans and widows, because each of them was godless and an evildoer, and every mouth spoke folly. "Yet for all this, his anger has not turned away, and his hand is still stretched out, ready to strike.
"Don't rejoice, all of you Philistines, that the rod that struck you is broken, because from the snake's root a viper will spring up, and its offspring will be a darting, poisonous serpent.
""Your doom has come to you, you who live in the land. The time has arrived, and the day of confusion is near. There will be no shouts of joy on the mountains.
Even in laughter there may be heartache, and at the end of joy there may be grief.
You have removed peace from my life; I have forgotten what prosperity is.
The joy of our hearts has ceased, and our dancing has turned into dirges.
"The celebrations of the tambourine have ended, the noise of the jubilant has stopped, and the mirth that the harp produces has ended.
There is an outcry in the streets over wine; all cheer turns to gloom; the fun times of the earth are banished.
Joy and gladness are taken away from the orchards, in the vineyards people will sing no songs, and no cheers are raised. No vintner treads out wine in the presses, because I've put an end to the shouting.
For this is what the LORD of the Heavenly Armies, the God of Israel, says: "In this place I'm about to bring an end to the sounds of happiness and rejoicing, the sounds of the bridegroom and the bride. I'll do it in front of your eyes and in your time.
In the towns of Judah and the streets of Jerusalem I'll bring an end to the sound of gladness and rejoicing, to the sounds of the bridegroom and bride, for the land will become a wasteland."
I'll destroy the sounds of gladness and rejoicing from them, the sounds of the bridegroom and the bride, the sound of the hand mill and also the light of the lamp.
Gladness and rejoicing will be taken away from the fruitful land. From the land of Moab I'll cause the wine in the wine presses to stop flowing. The workers won't tread the grapes with a loud shout. There will be no shout!
I'll put a stop to her mirth, along with her celebrations, her New Moons, her Sabbaths, and all of her festive assemblies.
"Don't celebrate, Israel, like other nations would rejoice, because you left your God by committing fornication, loving the profit you gained on all of the threshing floors.
Isn't our food supply cut off right in front of us, along with joy and gladness from the Temple of our God?
The grapevine is shriveled and the fig tree is withered, along with the pomegranate tree, the palm tree, the apple tree and all of the cultivated trees. Truly, joy has evaporated from Adam's children."
Let me know joy and gladness; let the bones that you have broken rejoice.
"Because you didn't serve the LORD your God joyfully and wholeheartedly, despite the abundance of everything you have,
However, stop rejoicing because the spirits are submitting to you. Instead, rejoice because your names are written in heaven."
Be miserable, mourn, and cry. Let your laughter be turned into mourning, and your joy into gloom.
