And darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
Notice the “face of the deep” / “face of the waters” parallelism, which is a literal translation of the Hebrew “pnei” (פני)
The “face” of the waters/the deep simply refers to the surface of the waters.
