comment Word/phrase like Schadenfreude, but a feeling of comfort or satisfaction?
"He who mocks the poor taunts his Maker; He who rejoices at calamity will not go unpunished" (Proverbs 17:5). Also, "Do not rejoice when your enemy falls, And do not let your heart be glad when he stubles; Or the LORD will see it and be displeased, And turn His anger away from him" (Proverbs 24:19).

@WS2: Believe it or not, I toyed with your idea which suggests that "over the bed" could indicate a direction (i.e., over = above), but the idea kind of evaporated. Besides, I think the more common expression in that case would be "The brothers fought ON the bed." I could be wrong, however. Don
