- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
5:5 Happy are the meek - They that hold all their passions and affections evenly balanced. They shall inherit the earth - They shall have all things really necessary for life and godliness. They shall enjoy whatever portion God hath given them here, and shall hereafter possess the new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
Mt 5:5 Blessed [are] the meek. The mild, the gentle, opposed to the proud and ambitious, the kind who succeed in such a kingdom as the Jews expected. Shall inherit the earth. The land; Canaan as the type of all blessings. It is the heavenly land especially that is inherited. The especial reference is to the Messiah's kingdom, of which "the land" of Canaan was a type.

The meek are those who exercise self control over the natural wild desires, they submit to God and depend on God for leading, protection, & provisions. They will enjoy God's goodness in full & shall possess the earth both now and the life after.

THIS WORDS ENCOURAGE ME TO KEEP ON IMITATING CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD WHO WAS CRUSIFIED AND INSULTED JUST FOR THE WILL OF GOD TO BE DONE.
