joy of the LORD

Nehemiah 8:10

8:10 joy of the LORD. The reading of the law had caused weeping, as the people realized their failures. Nevertheless, God had preserved them, as He had promised, and this new beginning was a time for thankful rejoicing. This particular phrase, “the joy of the LORD,” occurs elsewhere only in Matthew 25:21,23, where the Lord rewards His faithful servants with the invitation to “enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.”
