Exodus 40:1-38; Psalms 94:1-95:11; Acts 24:1-23

For He shall stand at the right hand of the poor, To save him from those who condemn him. Psalm 109:31, NKJV

In Zechariah 3:1, Satan, the brethren’s accuser (Rev. 12:10), stands in the place of prosecution at the right hand. But the Lord silences him and then extends grace and purification to the defiled priest, Joshua. David understood the same principle: God stands at His people’s right hand—“the poor in spirit” who trust in Him rather than themselves (Matt. 5:3) and vindicates them from every charge. His salvation, based on Christ’s propitiation, justifies believers from all condemnation (Rom. 8:1). —Keith Keyser

Who shall condemn us now? Since Christ has died, and risen, and gone above,
For us to plead at the right hand of Love; Who shall condemn us now? —Horatius Bonar
