Face

Additional Links

"Many will entreat the face (Hebrew text: "the favor") of the prince" (Proverbs 19:6). "The face of God" means His manifested presence and favor. Jacob saw God's face, and called the place Periel, "God's face" (Genesis 32:30), i.e. veiled in human form, in anticipation of the incarnation. The full radiancy of His glory man could not bear to see (Exodus 33:20).
