"Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth." (Matthew 5:5 KJV)
What does it mean to be meek? One definition of the word meek is enduring injury with patience and without resentment. Another is humbly patient or docile, as under provocation from others. Other definitions of the word meek are 1: overly submissive or compliant; spiritless; tame; 2 : deficient in spirit and courage 3: submissive ; not violent or strong ; moderate. One dictionary renders this as an obsolete definition of the word meek - gentle; kind.
When it comes to the biblical definition of meek some of the above definitions do not apply. One who is meek in God's eyes is not deficient in spirit and courage. The meek person is certainly not lacking in strength or spirit. Those whom God calls meek have strength under control.
