Matthew 25:32 And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:
Matthew 25:33 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
Like the rest of the chapter these verses specifically deal with the Second Coming of Christ
The figurative sheep goat judgement serves as a divider and classification for non-believers and believers. People who live a life of righteousness are the sheep. This makes sense as Jesus is the Shepard and ensuring the safety of his sheep is a Shepard’s priority. Goats on the other hand are used to classify people who did not live a life of righteousness and disobeyed God. Correspondingly sheep and goats aren’t usually kept in the same area which is why Jesus will divide them. The Goats do not belong in the Kingdom of Heaven.
And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.
Right is typically associated with being correct, evidently, Jesus will place sheep on His right side. Sheep will inherit the Kingdom of God and have eternal life.
