(here is my first answer in italki) you can't translate it one by one, but do this "ก้มหน้า" + "รับ" in one go, so "ก้มหน้ารับ" has the same meaning as just "รับ" which it does mean "receive", and "ก้มหน้า" is supposed to be adverb. กรรม = karma, an unjust deed, fate

I would like to give you some more explanation. You can only use the word "รับกรรม" that mean recieve the karma just like other comments. But these word are just told listener that what action have been done. But if you add "ก้มหน้า" it also can express the feeling of speaker. Because when you got a bad thing, you will lower down your head (or your face) to express the feeling that you are sad or you are sorry. So when you add this word it express the feeling of the speaker that he recieve the karma with grieve.

You have to practice more and more like me too. Every words sometimes don't have the meaning so you have to guest by the sentence

ก้มหน้ารับกรรม if you translate it directly, it means lower your head and take your karma. It is actually a Thai proverb. The true meaning is you admit the consequence of what you did and you cannot do anything to avoid it. I hope this help.
