    meek

    Hi, meek is a new word for me and I try to understand it. In a dictionary it is given as : mild and gentle; humble and patient.

    I would like to ask that whether or not "mild and gentle" and "humble and patient" are different meanings of "meek" ?

    Thank you.

    Re: meek

    Sort of, but other dictionaries give a clearer separation of meanings:
