Right (Opp. to Left), Right Hand, Right Side:

an adjective, used

(a) of "the right" as opposite to the left, e.g., Mat 5:29, 30; Rev 10:5, RV, "right hand;" in connection with armor (figuratively), 2Cr 6:7; with en, followed by the dative plural, Mar 16:5; with ek, and the genitive plural, e.g., Mat 25:33, 34; Luk 1:11;

(b) of giving the "right hand" of fellowship, Gal 2:9, betokening the public expression of approval by leaders at Jerusalem of the course pursued by Paul and Barnabas among the Gentiles; the act was often the sign of a pledge, e.g. 2Ki 10:15; 1Ch 29:24, marg.; Ezr 10:19; Eze 17:18; figuratively, Lam 5:6; it is often so used in the papyri;

(c) metaphorically of "power" or "authority," Act 2:33; with ek, signifying "on," followed by the genitive plural, Mat 26:64; Mar 14:62; Hbr 1:13;

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
