Thereafter, Hagar used another name to refer to the LORD, who had spoken to her. She said, "You are the God who sees me." She also said, "Have I truly seen the One who sees me?"
Jacob named the place Peniel (which means "face of God"), for he said, "I have seen God face to face, yet my life has been spared."
There they saw the God of Israel. Under his feet there seemed to be a surface of brilliant blue lapis lazuli, as clear as the sky itself.
I speak to him face to face, clearly, and not in riddles! He sees the LORD as he is. So why were you not afraid to criticize my servant Moses?"
How can someone like me, your servant, talk to you, my lord? My strength is gone, and I can hardly breathe."
