HAPPY, HAPPIER

makarios (3107), "blessed, happy," is rendered "happy" in the RV, in two places only, as in the KJV, <Acts 26:2> and <Rom. 14:22> (where "blessed" would have done); also the comparative "happier" in <1 Cor. 7:40>. Elsewhere the RV uses "blessed" for KJV "happy," e. g., <John 13:17; 1 Pet. 3:14; 4:14>.
