This final repetition of the psalm draws attention to its conclusion that the meek will inherit the earth. Meekness is not passive but active, as illustrated by Judah’s impassioned pleading with the potentate yet unrevealed as Joseph, and Jesus’ emphatic advice to take initiative and settle out of court.
No, meek is not weak
Patience is action at work
The whole earth applauds!
Cool head and strong heart
or brother’s pleading?
On way to the judge
Minds and hearts engage for change
Brand new horizons!

So good to read the psalms in haiku, Dennis. A fine Hebrew – Japanese cross culture. Please continue this literary ministry.
Thank you D1. Much appreciated.
