a God-anchored joy
Throughout the Old Testament, “simchah” connotes a deep, communal joy often associated with religious festivals, weddings, and other significant events. It isn’t just personal happiness; it’s the joy of shared experiences, faith, and God's faithfulness. David speaks of the “simchah” of God’s presence (Psalm 16:11). Solomon shows how it transcends external situations, prevailing in spite of heartache and grief (Proverbs 14:13).
