On Meekness

   Psa 25:9   The meek will he guide in judgment: and the 
   meek will he teach his way. 

   Psa 37:11   But the meek shall inherit the earth; and 
   shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. 

   Psa 76:8-9   Thou didst cause judgment to be heard from 
   heaven; the earth feared, and was still, {9} When God 
   arose to judgment, to save all the meek of the earth. 

   Psa 147:6   The LORD lifteth up the meek: he casteth the 
   wicked down to the ground. 

   Psa 149:4   For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people: he 
   will beautify the meek with salvation. 

   Prov 14:29   He that is slow to wrath is of great 
   understanding: but he that is hasty of spirit exalteth 

   Prov 15:1   A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous 
   words stir up anger. 

   Prov 15:18   A wrathful man stirreth up strife: but he 
   that is slow to anger appeaseth strife. 

   Prov 16:32   He that is slow to anger is better than the 
   mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh 
   a city. 

   Prov 17:1   Better is a dry morsel, and quietness 
   therewith, than an house full of sacrifices with strife. 

   Zep 2:3   Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, 
   which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek 
   meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the 
   LORD'S anger. 

   Mat 5:5   Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the 
   earth. {9} Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be 
   called the children of God. 

   Mat 5:38-42   Ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye 
   for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: {39} But I say unto 
   you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite 
   thee on thy right cheek, turn to him the other also. {40} 
   And if any man will sue thee at the law, and take away thy 
   coat, let him have thy cloak also. {41} And whosoever 
   shall compel thee to go a mile, go with him twain. {42} 
   Give to him that asketh thee, and from him that would 
   borrow of thee turn not thou away. 

   Mat 11:29   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. 

   Rom 12:14   Bless them which persecute you: bless, and 
   curse not. 

   Rom 12:18   If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, 
   live peaceably with all men. 

   Gal 5:22-23   But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, 
   peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, {23} 
   Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 

   Gal 5:26   Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking 
   one another, envying one another. 

   Gal 6:1   Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye 
   which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of 
   meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. 

   Eph 4:1-2   I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech 
   you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are 
   called, {2} With all lowliness and meekness, with 
   longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 

   Col 3:12-13   Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy 
   and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of 
   mind, meekness, longsuffering; {13} Forbearing one 
   another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a 
   quarrel against any: even as Christ forgave you, so also 
   do ye. 

   1 Th 5:14-15   Now we exhort you, brethren, warn them that 
   are unruly, comfort the feebleminded, support the weak, be 
   patient toward all men. {15} See that none render evil for 
   evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, 
   both among yourselves, and to all men. 

   1 Tim 6:11-12   But thou, O man of God, flee these things; 
   and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, 
   patience, meekness. {12} Fight the good fight of faith, 
   lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, 
   and hast professed a good profession before many 

   2 Tim 2:24-25   And the servant of the Lord must not 
   strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, 
   {25} In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; 
   if God peradventure will give them repentance to the 
   acknowledging of the truth; 

   Titus 2:2   That the aged men be sober, grave, temperate, 
   sound in faith, in charity, in patience. {9} Exhort 
   servants to be obedient unto their own masters, and to 
   please them well in all things; not answering again; 

   Titus 3:2   To speak evil of no man, to be no brawlers, 
   but gentle, showing all meekness unto all men. 

   James 1:4   But let patience have her perfect work, that 
   ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing. {19} 
   Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to 
   hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: 

   James 3:13   Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge 
   among you? let him show out of a good conversation his 
   works with meekness of wisdom. {17} But the wisdom that is 
   from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy 
   to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without 
   partiality, and without hypocrisy. {18} And the fruit of 
   righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. 

   1 Pet 2:18-23   Servants, be subject to your masters with 
   all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the 
   froward. {19} For this is thankworthy, if a man for 
   conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully. 
   {20} For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for 
   your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye 
   do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is 
   acceptable with God. {21} For even hereunto were ye 
   called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an 
   example, that ye should follow his steps: {22} Who did no 
   sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: {23} Who, when 
   he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he 
   threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth 

   1 Pet 3:4   But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in 
   that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek 
   and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great 

   1 Pet 3:11   Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him 
   seek peace, and ensue it. 

   1 Pet 3:15   But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and 
   be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh 
   you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and
