z As for one who is given his book in his right hand, 7 For the symbolic distinction between right and left, see 56:8-9c; for the meaning of the book in which one’s deeds are recorded, see 18:49c; and for the symbolism of receiving the book in the right or left hand, see 17:71c; 69:19-29c. This verse and others (e.g., 56:27-46) display the universal identification of the right hand with goodness and light and the left hand (though not mentioned explicitly) with evil and darkness, like the Latin sinister, which means “on the left” and is the origin of the English “sinister.”
