 clem·ent /ˈklɛmənt/

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Clem·ent a.  Mild in temper and disposition; merciful; compassionate.
 -- Clem*ent*ly, adv.

From: WordNet (r) 2.0

      adj 1: (of weather or climate) physically mild; "clement weather"
             [ant: inclement]
      2: (used of persons or behavior) inclined to show mercy; "a
         more clement judge reduced the sentence" [ant: inclement]

From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    mild, a Christian of Philippi, Paul's "fellow-labourer," whose
    name he mentions as "in the book of life" (Phil. 4:3). It was an
    opinion of ancient writers that he was the Clement of Rome whose
    name is well known in church history, and that he was the author
    of an Epistle to the Corinthians, the only known manuscript of
    which is appended to the Alexandrian Codex, now in the British
    Museum. It is of some historical interest, and has given rise to
    much discussion among critics. It makes distinct reference to
    Paul's First Epistle to the Corinthians.

From: Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's)

 Clement, mild; good; merciful
