Blessed [are] the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
Note 6 at Mt 5:5: The archaic meaning of "meek," which was dominant during the time of the King James translation, was "kind or gentle." It was not a term of weakness, as we can see in Mt 11:29 where Jesus said He was meek. Jesus had all power, but He would not use that power to promote Himself. So meekness includes humility, submission, kindness, and gentleness. Other scriptures on meekness are Nu 12:3; Ps 22:26, 25:9, 37:11, 147:6, 149:4; Isa 29:19, 61:1; Mt 21:5; Ga 5:22-23; and 1Pe 3:4.
