Also, is it speaking corporately or individually? Not sure if there's a "right" answer for this question. But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. The covenant theologian would say that this word for "new" really means "renewed" while the dispensationalist will argue that it means "new", as in a brand new creation, unrelated to the last. I would have to argue that in both situations, it's saying that the meek will, corporately, inherit the earth.
The word for "meek" in the original Greek is rendered in the plural, so it's talking about a group of meek people, Somebody Call The Law - The Stance - The Stance Shall Inherit The Earth opposed to a singular meek person. This Psalm is speaking of the present day, the present Earth. Evil doers will be cut down. You shall be fed. These are all current realities, speaking of this life. All throughout the Psalm, the writer is speaking of trusting in the Lord, and the Lord acting on behalf of the faithful, both in this life, and, in light of the New Testament, also with the promise of the next.
Using scripture to interpret itself, then, we can look for godly examples of meekness in the Old Testament and notice the result. A good example is Hannah. She was child barren, and more than that, the other wife of her husband was mocking her for it. Instead of lashing out and retaliating, she went to prayer in the temple.
She was a picture of meekness. Crying out to God without uttering a word, she asked God for reprieve. After being misunderstood by Eli and being falsely accused of drunkenness, God promised her a son through the prophet. Samuel was born to her in response to a prayer which didn't utter any words. Thus, she received a son whose words never fell to the ground.
Thus, we can see that God's answer to Hannah was to give her the things of this life--a son. So, it appears that "inheriting the Earth" is receiving the things that others fight and contend for by not forcing to get your own way. God's Stephen Stills - Love The One Youre With of receiving the things that the world pushes for is by not pushing, but by meekness.
Another example would be David. Although he at one point took a piece from Saul's robe, he purposed in his heart not to take the kingship which he was promised by force. Instead, he waited his time, hiding in a cave when necessary, and the kingship was delivered to him at the appropriate time. In retrospect, the later cursing by Shimei while David was fleeing from Absolom is important, then, because it was the exact accusation that Shimei was pointing at him. Because he hadn't taking the kingship by blood, but allowed it to come to him in God's time and way, Shimei's cursing was unjust, and David was not guilty of his words.
The point of the beatitude as a whole, then, is that we Somebody Call The Law - The Stance - The Stance Shall Inherit The Earth be "Most Happy" when we are not forcing to get our own way, because we know, in due time, Neva Slipping - Flight Boy - Behind Enemy Lines will inherit the very thing that everyone else is fighting to own.
In this knowledge, we prefer the path of meekness, with the knowledge that. While the Old Testament passage did not have the knowledge of Eternity, however, we see that the concept is extended, to both in this life and in the age to come Mark Glimpse Into Genocide - Napalm Death - MP3 Collection, being the perfect example of meekness as the lamb upon the cross, receives the fullness of this inheritance through His crucifixion.
