 1) mildness of disposition, gentleness of spirit, meekness

 Meekness toward God is that disposition of spirit in which we accept
 His dealings with us as good, and therefore without disputing or
 resisting. In the OT, the meek are those wholly relying on God rather
 than their own strength to defend them against injustice. Thus,
 meekness toward evil people means knowing God is permitting the
 injuries they inflict, that He is using them to purify His elect, and
 that He will deliver His elect in His time. (Is. 41:17, Lu. 18:1-8)
 Gentleness or meekness is the opposite to self-assertiveness and
 self-interest. It stems from trust in God's goodness and control over
 the situation. The gentle person is not occupied with self at all.
 This is a work of the Holy Spirit, not of the human will. (Gal. 5:23)
