How Could The Meek Possibly "Inherit The Earth"???

Somehow a major calamity would have to wipe out only the strong, and only leave the meek. What are the chances of that happening? Hello?!

If we take "Meek" to mean weak.....you are correct.

meek does not = weak.

for example, i could be a general in the army and crush my opposition yet have a meek countenance.

I am generally a quiet man who tends to ignore obnoxious people...those who take this to mean weak have been unpleasantly surprised at times.

3. The meek are happy. The meek are those who quietly submit to God; who can bear insult; are silent, or return a soft answer; who, in their patience, keep possession of their own souls, when they can scarcely keep possession of anything else. These meek ones are happy, even in this world. Meekness promotes wealth, comfort, and safety, even in this world.
The meek do not literally inherit the earth but it's a mental exercise that keeps people happy and mentally stable in this world. I also have a hunch that His Kingdom that Jesus prophesied is actually Israel, which the twelve tribes of Israel can enter.
Thanks from tecoyah
