The name Peniel is seen in the Bible (Genesis 32:24-32). The name comes from a compound Hebrew name which is made of two Hebrew words:
PANEH which means “face” or “in the presence of”,
EL which is a short for Elohim (who is God).
The name Peniel literally means “in the face of God” or “in the presence of God.”
The Bible’s Genesis 32 account states that the LORD blessed Jacob there at Peniel! We pray that your visit to Peniel will also be a blessing to you and us.
