Dictionaries – Easton’s Bible Dictionary – Hand
“Hand [N]
Called by Galen “the instrument of instruments.” It is the symbol of human action ( Psalms 9:16 ; Job 9:30 ; Isaiah 1:15 ; 1 Timothy 2:8 ). Washing the hands was a symbol of innocence ( Psalms 26:6 ; 73:13 ; Matthew 27:24 ), also of sanctification ( 1 Corinthians 6:11 ; Isaiah 51:16 ; Psalms 24:3 Psalms 24:4 ). In Psalms 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 Samuel 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 ( Ezekiel 17:18 ; Jeremiah 50:15 ). The right hand was lifted up in taking an oath ( Genesis 14:22 , etc.). The hand is frequently mentioned, particularly the right hand, as a symbol of power and strength ( Psalms 60:5 ; Isaiah 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 Ezra 7:28 ; Isaiah 1:25 ; Luke 1:66 , etc.) or punishment ( Exodus 9:3 ; Judges 2:15 ; Acts 13:11 , etc.). A position at the right hand was regarded as the chief place of honour and power ( Psalms 45:9 ; 80:17 ; 110:1 ; Matthew 26:64 ).”

(Exod 14:31 VW) And Israel saw the great hand which Jehovah had dealt against Egypt. And the people feared Jehovah, and believed Jehovah and His servant Moses.

(Exod 14:31 NKJ2000) And Israel saw that great work which the LORD did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the LORD, and believed the LORD, and his servant Moses.

Work = yad

God’s great power.

Praise you Jesus. I saw your great power yesterday at work. Making the impossible happen. Getting done what needed to get done. Changing what looked like a very bad situation into a demonstration of your power.
One thing that happened was no truck to deliver the papers. Guy showed up very late which is not good but it all worked out perfectly. The guy did come. We were behind in our work and that gave us time to catch up because someone else called in and we were short people.
Just watching what seems horrible, a guy short and no truck, turn out to benefit and bless us and by Your power everything that needed to get done got done. Praise you Jesus.

(Exod 14:31 ESV) Israel saw the great power that the LORD used against the Egyptians, so the people feared the LORD, and they believed in the LORD and in his servant Moses.
