International Standard Bible EncyclopediaCOVER; COVERING
kuv'-er, kuv'-er-ing: The translation of several Hebrew words. The covering of the ark (mikhceh, Genesis 8:13) was possibly the lid of a hatchway (compare Mitchell, World before Abraham, 215).
COVERING, FOR THE HEAD
kuv'-er-ing, (peribolaion): Mentioned in the New Testament only in 1 Corinthians 11:15: "For her hair is given her for a covering," literally, "something cast round," probably equivalent to "veil" (which see). Read in the light of the context: "Every woman praying or prophesying with her head unveiled dishonoreth her head" (verse 5). The meaning would seem to be that Nature itself, in providing women with a natural veil, has taught the lesson underlying the prevailing custom, that woman should not be unveiled in the public assemblies.

Easton's Bible DictionaryCovering of the eyes
Occurs only in Genesis 20:16. In the Revised Version the rendering is "it (i.e., Abimelech's present of 1, n000 pieces of silver to Abraham) is for thee a covering of the eyes." This has been regarded as an implied advice to Sarah to conform to the custom of married women, and wear a complete veil, covering the eyes as well as the rest of the face.
