_ _ The Lord talked with you face to face in the mount — not in a visible and corporeal form, of which there was no trace (Deuteronomy 4:12, Deuteronomy 4:15), but freely, familiarly, and in such a manner that no doubt could be entertained of His presence.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Deuteronomy 5:1-5.

Face to face — Personally and immediately, not by the mouth or ministry of Moses; plainly and certainly, as when two men talk face to face; freely and familiarly, so as not to overwhelm and confound you.
