JOY

John 16:22, NIV: "So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy." (Source:John 16:22, ESV: "So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy 

John 16:22, NLT: "So you have sorrow now, but I will see you again; then you will rejoice, and no one can rob you of that joy."

John 16:22, KJV: "And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you." www.bibleref.com www.biblestudytools.com)

As Christ explains the misery and persecution His followers can expect from the world (John 16:1–3), He also offers comfort. A crucial aspect of that encouragement is the fact that pain and suffering are temporary, as compared to the blessings offered by life in Christ (John 10:10; 14:6). Jesus has recently predicted that the disciples' experience of His death and resurrection (John 18:1–3; 19:18; 20:19) will parallel that of a woman giving birth. The pain is intense, but relatively short-lived, and what comes after is a lasting and even-more-intense joy And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you.

So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.

(Source:www.biblestudytools.com was did the hearts of the disciples, when they saw Christ risen from the dead; and as the hearts of believers do, when Christ so looks upon them that they can view him with an eye of faith; such a sight is a heart rejoicing one. To see the glory and beauty of Christ's person, the fulness and suitableness of him as a Saviour; to have an appropriating view of him as such; or to see him so as to have sensible communion with him, must needs fill the heart of a believer with joy unspeakable, and full of glory: such a sight of Christ will rejoice the heart under a sense of sin, the pollution and guilt of it, when tempted by Satan, or under God's afflicting hand, and even in the view of death and eternity.
