Here Peter quotes a passage that David wrote in a Psalm which relates to Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection.

“in front of me.” AT: “in my presence” or “with me” (See: rc://en/ta/man/translate/figs-synecdoche and rc://en/ta/man/translate/figs-idiom)

beside my right hand

To be at someone’s “right hand” often means to be in a position to help and sustain. AT: “right beside me” or “with me to help me” (See: rc://en/ta/man/translate/figs-synecdoche and rc://en/ta/man/translate/figs-idiom)
