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

Study the daily Chumash with Rashi, Tanya and Rambam with master teacher Rabbi Yehoshua B. Gordon.
