* right hand  – In ancient times, a person with high or highest rank stood to the king’s right side. Even today, a person may be called someone’s “right hand man” or “wing-man” when he or she serves as the closest person to another leader. An example of this can be found in (Genesis 48:13-14)  where Jacob blessed the child who would receive a greater blessing with his right hand. The right hand of God likewise relates to this concept of someone being right next to God, acknowledging both authority and closeness to Him.
