[ FEW: 10,335a revereri; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF:  reverent (reverentier); DMF: ; TLF: ; OED:  reverence v.; MED:  reverencen v.; DMLBS: ]

The verb is attested in Continental French from the 17th century though the form is included (without citation) in Gdf Lexique. The term should perhaps be considered a Middle English borrowing as it is attested in Middle English from the late 14th century.
