The nominative singular feminine noun "chara" translated joy and it means inner happiness and contentment.
God’s happiness is a relaxed mental attitude and an opponent to pride and arrogance; and it expresses itself magnificently in the friendship and conversation with true friends.
Albert Camus = "To be happy we must not be too concerned with others."
True happiness or joy is the monopoly from the Lord, a treasure in the soul, and therefore should be guarded carefully, and nothing in this world can ever coincide with it.
Satan’s myth of arrogance is that both people and pleasant circumstances in life can make you happy. Money, success, pleasure, social life, sexual life, public approbation, fame, material things, travel, health, and pleasant circumstances in life can make you happy.
What God has provided for us in sharing His happiness is a permanent factor and a problem solving device.
If you are dependent on any person or set of circumstances for happiness, you are weak and you do not have happiness. To the extent that you are dependent on people, circumstances, prosperity, success, or any accouterments of life for happiness, you are weak.
If have been faithful in the P.M.A. of BD and have advanced to any stage of spiritual adulthood; you are not only a strong person, but you have that great inner happiness.
God’s happiness is not dependent on environment, associations, or circumstances of prosperity or adversity; it depends on none of these things.
Satan is the ruler of this world, LUK 4:5,7; JOH 12:31; JOH 14:30; JOH 16:11; 2CO 4:4; EPH 2:2. Satan’s administration of pseudo-H any bel/unbel can only exist when that person is involved in the cosmic system; where through arrogance, any capacity for happiness is destroyed.
Arrogance includes jealousy; you cannot be jealous and be happy. It also includes implacability, vindictiveness, hatred, revenge motivation, revenge function; none of which you can have and be happy. Pseudo happiness can be stimulation, fun, entertainment, or something that is enjoyable, but it isn’t permanent; it is momentary.
JOB 20:5 The triumphing of the wicked is short, and the happiness of the godless momentary?
God’s happiness is a magnificent problem solving device because you have it all the time, and you merely tune into it during times of problem solving.
You must have capacity for happiness to really be happy, and then you can be happy in whatever life has to offer you in a given moment.
This Greek word eusebeia means spiritual dynamics or the spiritual life. Godliness means you’re in the place where God can train you, that is, residence, function, and momentum inside the PPOG. "Contentment" = God’s happiness which begins in SSE continued in SAe, and completed in SM.
If you’re content with the basic things and you develop God’s happiness, then God can trust you with the most magnificent things in life, as packaged in your escrow blessings for time.

If possible, those who seek happiness by trying to destroy others would strip them naked to the soul if possible.
One thing about malicious witnesses and individuals influenced by evil, they have no compassion and reject grace orientation.
In verse 13, notice David’s attitude toward them when they were in need;
PRO 17:5 He who is happy at calamity will not go unpunished.
A pack of wolves tearing apart their prey was said to be nothing compared with a set of malicious gossips mauling the reputation of a godly man or woman.
A godless jester is a hypocritical mocker, or a professional clown who make jokes while destroying the character and reputation of another.
