RIGHT-HAND

The most efficient member of the body, Matthew 5:30, and the ready executor of the behests of the will. Hence its use as a symbol of many of the strongest emotions of the inner man. The right-hand is significant of power, especially the almighty power of God, Exodus 15:6 Psalms 21:8 77:10; of honor, Psalms 45:9 Matthew 25:34 Acts 7:55; of special benediction, Genesis 48:14; of fraternal love, Galatians 2:9; of hostility, Psalms 109:6 Zechariah 3:1; and of allegiance, 1 Chronicles 29:24. It was raised in the act of prayer, and also in taking an oath, Genesis 14:22; hence the right-hand of a perjured man was "a right-hand of falsehood," Psalms 144:8. In regard to the points of the compass, the right-hand in Hebrew denotes the south, 1 Samuel 23:19 24:1-22; as the left-hand means the north, Genesis 14:15. See EAST.
