For "them that are quiet in the land", in Psalm 35:20, see MEEKNESS; POOR.

"Jacob was a quiet (tam, "gentle") man" (Genesis 25:27, the King James Version "plain"). In the New Testament, it is the translation of hesuchazo, "to refrain from gossip or meddlesomehess": "that ye study to be quiet": (1 Thessalonians 4:11), and of hesuchios, "gentle": "a meek and quiet spirit" (1 Peter 3:4; compare 1 Timothy 2:2).
