Creep

CREEP, v.i. Gr., the sense is to catch, to grapple; L., to scrape or scratch.

1. To move with the belly on the ground, or the surface of any other body, as a worm or serpent without legs, or as many insects with feet and very short legs; to crawl.
2. To move along the ground, or on the surface of any other body, in growth, as a vine; to grow along.
3. To move slowly, feebly or timorously; as an old or infirm man, who creeps about his chamber.
4. To move slowly and insensibly, as time.

To morrow, and to morrow, and to morrow, creeps in this petty pace from day to day.

5. To move secretly; to move so as to escape detection, or prevent suspicion.

Of this sort are they who creep into houses, and lead away captive silly women. 2 Timothy 3.

6. To steal in; to move forward unheard and unseen; to come or enter unexpectedly or unobserved; as, some error has crept into the copy of a history.
7. To move or behave with servility; to fawn.
