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 16:8 ; 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 1 Kings 8:44 1 Kings 8:48 ; 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 John 1:18 ). biblestudytools.com

  81. The face is the anterior part of the head. It is formed of 13 bones, viz., the two superior maxillary, the two molar, the two ossa nasi, the two ossa unguis, the vomer, the two ossa spongiosa inferiora, the two palate bones, and the inferior maxillary, without including the frontal portion of the os frontis, and the 32 teeth, which may be considered to form part of it. Its numerous muscles are chiefly destined for the organs of sight, hearing, taste, and smell. Its arteries proceed from the external carotid: its veins end in the jugular, and its nerves draw their origin, immediately from the brain. The face experiences alterations in disease, which it is important to attend to. It is yellow in jaundice, pale and puffy in dropsy; and its expression is very different, according to the seat of irritation, so that, in infants, by an attention to medical physiognomy, we can often detect the seat of disease. Hippocrates has well depicted the change which it experiences in one exhausted by long sickness, by great evacuations, excessive hunger, watchfulness, &c., threatening dissolution. Hence this state has been called Facies Hippocratica, Facies Cadaverica, F. Tortudlie. In this,. the nose is pinched; the eyes are sunk; the temples hollow; the ears cold, and retracted; the skin of the forehead tense, and dry; the complexion livid; the lips pendent, relaxed, and cold, &c.
