Veil, - Vernon;
Venomous, full of venom, poisonous: As II, 1, 13. Ant. V, 2, 308. Metaphorically == pernicious; malignant: “thy tears are . . . v. to thine eyes,” Cor. IV, 1, 23. “the v. malice of my swelling heart,” Tit. V, 3, 13. Singular expression: beshrew the witch (Night)! “with v. wights she stays as tediously as hell,” Troil. IV, 2, 12 (Steevens: 'v. wights, venefici, those who practise nocturnal sorcery;' which explication, strange to say, has been acquiesced in by the other commentators. Perhaps the words mean simply people thinking on evil).
