Nave's Topical Bible
Face: Means simply presence, as when it is recorded that Adam and Eve hid themselves from the "face [R.V., 'presence'] of the Lord God" (Genesis 3:8) comp. (Exodus 33:14,15) where the same Hebrew word is rendered "presence"). The "light of God's countenance" is his favour (Psalms 44:3) (Daniel 9:17) "Face" signifies also anger, justice, severity (Genesis 16:6) (Genesis 8:1)ff (Exodus 2:15; Psalms 68:1; Revelation 6:16) To "provoke God to his face" (Isaiah 65:3) is to sin against him openly. The Jews prayed with their faces toward the temple and Jerusalem (1 Kings 8:38,44,48; Daniel 6:10) To "see God's face" is to have access to him and to enjoy his favour (Psalms 17:15; 27:8) This is the privilege of holy angels (Matthew 18:10) (Luke 1:19) The "face of Jesus Christ" (2 Corinthians 4:6) is the office and person of Christ, the revealer of the glory of God (John 1:14,18)
