87. The same rule holds good for other words; for example, where "joy" is mentioned, so is "gladness:"
Behold joy and gladness, slaying the ox (Isa. 22:13).
They shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away (Isa. 35:10; 51:11).
Gladness and joy are cut off from the house of our God (Joel 1:16).
There shall be taken away the voice of joy, and the voice of gladness (Jer. 7:34; 25:10).
The fast of the tenth [month] shall be to the house of Judah for joy and gladness (Zech. 8:19).
That we may rejoice all our days, make Thou us glad (Ps. 90:14-15).
Be ye glad in Jerusalem, and rejoice in her (Isa. 66:10).
Rejoice and be glad, O daughter of Edom (Lam. 4:21).
The heavens shall be glad, and the earth shall rejoice (Ps. 96:11).
Make me to hear joy and gladness (Ps. 51:8).
Joy and gladness shall be found in Zion, confession and the voice of singing (Isa. 51:3).
There shall be gladness, and many shall rejoice at His birth (Luke 1:14).
I will cause to cease the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride (Jer. 7:34; 16:9; 25:10).
There shall be heard in this place the voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride (Jer. 33:10-11).
The reason why both "joy" and "gladness" are mentioned is that "joy" is of good and "gladness" of truth, or "joy" is of love and "gladness" of wisdom. For joy is of the heart and gladness of the soul, or joy is of the will and gladness of the understanding. That there is a marriage of the Lord and the church in these expressions also is evident from its being said,
The voice of joy and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride (Jer. 7:34; 16:9; 25:10; 33:10-11).
The Lord is the "bridegroom," and the church is the "bride."
That the Lord is the bridegroom, see Matt. 9:15; Mark 2:19-20; Luke 5:34-35;
And that the church is the bride, Rev. 21:2, 9; 22:17.
And therefore John the Baptist said of Jesus:
He that hath the bride is the bridegroom (John 3:29).
