Attributes of God in the Torah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم
وصلى الله على نبينا محمد
وعلى اهل بيته الطيبين الطاهرين المظلومين
In this series affirming the Names and Attributes of Allah Most High, I would like to quote from the holy Torah which is one of the Scriptures of the Lord God, regarding which the Qur’an says:
إِنَّا أَنزَلْنَا التَّوْرَاةَ فِيهَا هُدًى وَنُورٌ
Verily, We sent down the Torah, in it is guidance and light
[Sura 5:44]
وَمِن قَبْلِهِ كِتَابُ مُوسَىٰ إِمَامًا وَرَحْمَةً ۚ وَهَـٰذَا كِتَابٌ مُّصَدِّقٌ لِّسَانًا عَرَبِيًّا
And before it was the Book of Moses, an Imam and a mercy. And this Book is a confirmation in the Arabic tongue.
[Sura 46:12]

In this entry, I shall cite from the holy Torah which speaks of various essential attributes of the Lord God:
The Face of God [Panim or Paneh]
And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live [Exodus 33:20, 23]
The Eyes of God [Ayin]
The eyes of YHVH thy God are always upon it [Deuteronomy 11:12]
The Hand of God [Yad]
The hand of YHVH [Exodus 9:3]
The Finger of God [Etsba]
Written with the finger of God [Exodus 31:18]
The Feet of God [Regel]
And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. [Exodus 24:10]
