  -> I disagree. "l'tzidi" means physically by my side, whereas batzad sh'li (my rendering) also plays on the idiom of having someone on their side (i.e: supporting them)

disagree  Michal Circolone: see my comment above. Also, Yeshu (ישו) isn't the acceptable rendering for the Biblical Son of God, but Yeshua. (for example see The Bible Society in Israel's rendering).

ישו הוא לימיני


Explanation:
A more biblical way of expressing this would be:
Literally - Jesus is at my right hand
See Psalms 110-1

Example sentence(s):
  • ('Sit thou at My right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.')
