 5 Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. [Blessed are those who have been changed by the Spirit of God to become humble, gentle, and in control of their emotions, for they shall inherit a new earth; and those who wait upon the Lord shall inherit the earth, Psalm 37:9, for by your persistent and patient waiting on the Lord, He changes you to become meek with great self-control. From the word of the Lord within: ""Those who wait on the Lord shall inherit a new earth."]
