Auf das Wort gestoßen bin ich in:
Lucy Maud Montgomery: Anne of Ingleside (Band 6 der "Anne of Green Gables" Serie).
Dort steht in einem Gedicht über einen Verstorbenen:
"Since these Things to him were dear
Through full many a well-spent year,
It is surely meet this grace
Should be on his resting place..."
Eine Recherche ergab zwei berühmtere Stellen:
William Shakespeare, Othello, 1. Akt, 2. Szene:
Farewell, for I must leave you.
It seems not meet, nor wholesome to my place,
To be producted (as, if I stay, I shall)
Against the Moor.
The Bible, Ezra 4,14 King James Version:
Now because we have maintenance from the king's palace, and it was not meet for us to see the king's dishonour, therefore have we sent and certified the king;
archaic proper, fitting, or correct
Suitable or proper:
‘it was not meet for us to see the king's dishonour’
Definition of meet: precisely adapted to a particular situation, need, or circumstance : very proper
