Jesus' "Sermon on the Mount" study, part 3

"Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth." Jesus speaking in Matthew 5:5

The meek shall eat and be satisfied: they shall praise the LORD that seek him: your heart shall live for ever." David in Psalm 22:26 (This is the Psalm Jesus started quoting on the cross and is very important.)

"The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way." Psalm 25:9 in another Psalm of David.

"But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace." Psalm 37:22 in another Psalm of David.

" The LORD lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground." Psalm 147:6 Look at the contrast between the meek and the wicked.

"Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls." Jesus in Matthew 11:29. Look who is meek.

What do you think meek means in the context of the Bible?
