The women sing "joyful songs" about the number of people Saul and David had killed

1 Samuel 18:6-7 When the men were returning home after David had killed the Philistine, the women came out from all the towns of Israel to meet King Saul with singing and dancing, with joyful songs and with tambourines and lutes. As they danced, they sang:
"Saul has slain his thousands,
and David his tens of thousands."


Was this a competition? Would you consider these "joyful songs?"
