SCRIPTURE COMMENTARY #158
" Blessed are the meek: for they shall possess the land." (Matt. 5:4)
THE MEEK are those who are not made angry or bitter by contradictions, injuries, or abuse. Example: David, in his conduct towards Saul and Absalom.
[From 'A Practical Commentary on Holy Scripture' by Bishop Knecht, D.D.](1899 Douay-Rheims Bible)
