Psalms 17:6 (to :), 15 I will
I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: . . . I will behold thy face in righteousness: I shall be satisfied, when I awake, with thy likeness.
Psalms 27:8; Genesis 32:24–30
8 When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
24 And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day.
25 And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob's thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him.
26 And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me.
27 And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob.
28 And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.
29 And Jacob asked him, and said, Tell me, I pray thee, thy name. And he said, Wherefore is it that thou dost ask after my name? And he blessed him there.
30 And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.
