Exodus 33:20 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

20 But you cannot see my face, for no one can see me and live.[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 33:20 No one can see me and live: reflecting the tradition that to see God meant instant death. This is contradicted by the statements that Hagar (Gn 16:13), Jacob (Gn 32:31), and Manoah and his wife (Jgs 13:22) all “see God” and yet live (see also Ex 24:10–11).
