> Yahweh: I will pass my goodness by your FACE and cry out by
> the name Yahweh to your FACE. [Moses did not ask to see
> his goodness or hear him cry out].
> I favor who is the favorite (vehanotiy et-asher ahon) and I
> love who is the beloved (verihametiy et-asher arahem).
> [This seems to parallel Ex 3:14 eheyeh asher eheyeh.]
> No man may see my FACE and live.
Both in Ex3 and in Ex33 'verb asher verb' has the sense of refusal: refusal
to tell the name and to show the face.
ehye asher ehye is not the name, but a refusal to tell it. Similarly in Ex33
