        b. To bring to view; show.
    2. To make known by supernatural or divine means: "For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven" (Romans 1:18).
[Middle English revelen, from Old French reveler, from Latin revêlâre : re-, re- + vêlâre, to cover (from vêlum, veil).]
reveal'able (adjective) - reveal'er (noun) - reveal'ment (noun)
Synonyms: reveal, expose, disclose, divulge, betray. These verbs signify to make known what has been or ought to be kept from the knowledge of others. Reveal suggests uncovering what has been concealed: "He was glad it was to him she had revealed her secret" (Edith Wharton). To expose is to lay bare to public scrutiny: In a slip of the tongue the schemer exposed his true motivation. Disclose means to make known as if by removing a cover: The journalist refused to disclose the source of her information. Divulge often implies the improper revelation of something private or secret: "And whatsoever I shall see or hear in the course of my profession . . . if it be what should not be published abroad, I will never divulge, holding such things to be holy secrets" (Hippocratic Oath). To betray is to make known in a breach of trust or confidence: "A servant . . . betrayed their presence . . . to the Germans" (William Styron). The term can also mean to reveal against one's desire or will: Her comment betrayed annoyance.
