Easton's Bible Dictionary
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 (Psalm 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 ).
