made laughter and making merry...similar word? Yitzchok's name made laughter for me and mtzchok, make merry look like the same root

I am guessing that there is a huge difference, obviously, between them, and that the difference is leitzonos, a denial of Hashem, of Hagar mocking Sara to diminish Sara's emunah, to have a war with Hashem, giving voice to laughter that shames with the goal of creating doubts. Is that correct? Reply
