PREPOSITIONS. Without for "outside of"

Without (used locally for "outside").

“What seal is that that hangs without thy bosom?

“Without the peril of the Athenian law.

“A mile without the town.” Ib. i. 1. 104.

This explains the pun:

Val. Are all these things perceived in me?
Speed. They are all perceived without ye.

Reversely, "out of" is used metaphorically for "without." “Neither can anything please God that we do if it be done out
of charity.” HALLIWELL.
