In the Hebrew language they use the plural for face (faces) as indicated by the suffix ים iym.
Most words in the Hebrew language expresses the idea of motion or denote objects of action. The action behind paniym is the expression of emotion and thoughts in the face, and since we have an infinite number of thoughts and emotions the Hebrew word is plural.
This Hebrew word more precisely means the “presence” or the “wholeness” of an individual who is ONE with God.
Can others see the presence of God when they look into your face?
