On Meekness

Two translations for meek in my small German/English dictionary.

Duckmäuser: moral coward.   Hmmm, as meek as a church(Maus)mouse? Definitely a pejorative.

sanftmütig: Which uses two words that could be translated separately; sanft (gentle) + mutig (courageous)= meek.

Somehow, I don't think it's the moral cowards that will be blessed.
