When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child; but when I became a man, I put away childish things. For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known.
(1 Corinthians 13:11-12)
So Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: “For I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.”
