Habitation

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links
God is the habitation of his people, who find rest and safety in him (Psalm 71:3 ; 91:9 ). Justice and judgment are the habitation of God's throne (Psalm 89:14 , Heb. mekhon, "foundation"), because all his acts are founded on justice and judgment. (See Psalm 132:5,13 ; Ephesians 2:22 , of Canaan, Jerusalem, and the temple as God's habitation.) God inhabits eternity (Isaiah 57:15 ), i.e., dwells not only among men, but in eternity, where time is unknown; and "the praises of Israel" (Psalm 22:3 ), i.e., he dwells among those praises and is continually surrounded by them.
