comment sameach vs. samach
those are two different words: שַׂמַּח is past tense and שַׂמֵּחַ is present tense so the translation is differs. However I don't know the reason for that.

comment What else was in the Ark (Teiva)?
The is a description of number of big animals in the beggining of fifth perek in Baba Batra (like הררי אלף also) that couldn't get into the Teiva because of theirs sizes. But I've heard an explanation is that all that gemorah is not "כפשותו" and has a kabbalistic explanation, so also the Re'em maybe not a real animal, but rather a hint to some spiritual idea

comment Riddle: Honor-Dishonor
I know the opposite case: the action to dishonor the בעל פעור is considered as honor, because this is the way to work it, therefore its not okay.
