Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

With righteousness [Jesus] shall judge the poor,
    and decide with equity for the meek of the earth.

In just a little while, the wicked will be no more;
    though you look carefully at his place, he will not be there.
But the meek shall inherit the land
    and delight themselves in abundant peace.

Matt. 5:5, Isaiah 11:4, Psalm 37:10-11, ESV
