Peniel

In Kabbalistic lore, angel who governs Friday and lives in the third HEAVEN . Peniel means “face of God.” Peniel is sometimes identified as the dark fig- ure who wrestles with JACOB in Genesis 32:24–30. After the all-night struggle, Jacob asks his adversary his name, but the other does not give it, only asking Jacob why he asks. Jacob then names the place where the struggle took place as Peniel, “For I have seen God face to face, and yet my life is preserved” (Gene- sis 32:30). The Zohar, however, names Samael as the adversary.
