PE’LTING. adj.

PE'LTING. adj.

PE’LTING. adj. This word in Shakespeare signifies, I know not
why, mean; paltry; pitiful.
Could great men thunder, Jove could ne’er be quiet;
For every pelting petty officer
Would use his heav’n for thunder. Shakespeare.
Fogs falling in the land,
Have every pelting river made so proud,
That they have overborn their continents.  Shakesp.
They from sheepcotes and poor pelting villages
Enforce their charity. Shakesp.
A tenement or pelting farm. Shakesp.
