 re·veal /rɪˈvi(ə)l/

From: Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary (1913)

 Re·veal v. t. [imp. & p. p. Revealed p. pr. & vb. n. Revealing.]
 1. To make known (that which has been concealed or kept secret); to unveil; to disclose; to show.
 Light was the wound, the prince's care unknown,
 She might not, would not, yet reveal her own.   --Waller.
 2. Specifically, to communicate (that which could not be known or discovered without divine or supernatural instruction or agency).
 Syn: -- To communicate; disclose; divulge; unveil; uncover; open; discover; impart; show.
 Usage: See Communicate. -- Reveal, Divulge. To reveal is literally to lift the veil, and thus make known what was previously concealed; to divulge is to scatter abroad among the people, or make publicly known. A mystery or hidden doctrine may be revealed; something long confined to the knowledge of a few is at length divulged. “Time, which reveals all things, is itself not to be discovered.” --Locke. “A tragic history of facts divulged.” --Wordsworth.
