Using the Complete Word Study Dictionary by Spiros Zohiates:

4236 MEEKNESS. Praotes--- mildness, mildness, forbearance.

Primarily it--denotes--an inward grace of the soul, calmness toward God in particular.

It is the acceptance of God's dealing with us considering them as good in that they enhance the closeness of our relationship with Him.

However praotes encompasses expressing anger toward the sin of man as demonstrated by the Lord Jesus.

This meakness does not blame God for the persecutions and evil doing of men.

It is not the result of weakness.

(Someone said it is strength under control)

5012 HUMILITY-- tapeinophrosunes : lowminded, base, from tapeinos 5011: lowly, humble.

Humility, lowliness of mind,

The esteeming of ourselves small, inasmuch as we are so,

The correct estimate of ourselves.

For the sinner, it involves the confession of his sin and a deep realization of his unworthiness to receive God's marvelous grace.

3114 LONG-SUFFERING --makrothumeo: long suffering, as opposed to hasty anger or punishment

To forbear

To endure patiently as opposed to losing faith or giving up.

It involves exercising understanding and patience toward antagonistic persons.

Your thoughts?
