It relates directly to your discussion on laughter in the Bible.

The two verses are quite simple,

Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.

Woe to you who laugh now, for you will mourn and weep.

This is an example of this verse being fulfilled.

As for the "Problem of Evil" we have already presented two very plausible versions.

Iggy's version is that a life span of 100 years relative to eternity is less than 0.01%, hence it minimizes any "evil" to a negligible amount.

I do not consider that version to be well supported by the Bible -- my version is that life is an illusion, you can liken it to a simulation. Because the Bible says that "time will be no more", it is not part of eternity, you cannot say that our life span is an infinitesimal part of eternity, it isn't part of it at all.

Either way the problem of evil is really the problem of atheists who can't see eternity.
