  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Hand 
  Called  by  Galen  "the  instrument  of  instruments."  It  is  the 
  symbol  of  human  action  (Ps.  9:16;  Job  9:30;  Isa.  1:15;  1  Tim. 
  2:8).  Washing  the  hands  was  a  symbol  of  innocence  (Ps.  26:6; 
  73:13;  Matt.  27:24),  also  of  sanctification  (1  Cor.  6:11;  Isa. 
  51:16;  Ps  24:3,  4).  In  Ps  77:2  the  correct  rendering  is  as  in 
  the  Revised  Version,  "My  hand  was  stretched  out,"  etc.,  instead 
  of  as  in  the  Authorized  Version,  "My  sore  ran  in  the  night," 
  etc 
 
  The  right  hand  denoted  the  south,  and  the  left  the  north  (Job 
  23:9;  1  Sam.  23:19).  To  give  the  right  hand  was  a  pledge  of 
  fidelity  (2  Kings  10:15;  Ezra  10:19);  also  of  submission  to  the 
  victors  (Ezek.  17:18;  Jer.  50:15).  The  right  hand  was  lifted  up 
  in  taking  an  oath  (Gen.  14:22,  etc.).  The  hand  is  frequently 
  mentioned,  particularly  the  right  hand,  as  a  symbol  of  power  and 
  strength  (Ps.  60:5;  Isa.  28:2).  To  kiss  the  hand  is  an  act  of 
  homage  (1  Kings  19:18;  Job  31:27),  and  to  pour  water  on  one's 
  hands  is  to  serve  him  (2  Kings  3:11).  The  hand  of  God  is  the 
  symbol  of  his  power:  its  being  upon  one  denotes  favour  (Ezra 
  7:6,  28;  Isa.  1:25;  Luke  1:66,  etc.)  or  punishment  (Ex.  9:3; 
  Judg.  2:15;  Acts  13:11,  etc.).  A  position  at  the  right  hand  was 
  regarded  as  the  chief  place  of  honour  and  power  (Ps.  45:9; 
  80:17;  110:1;  Matt.  26:64).
