Easton's Bible Dictionary
Habitation

God is the habitation of his people, who find rest and safety in him (Psalms 71:3; 91:9). Justice and judgment are the habitation of God's throne (Psalms 89:14, Heb. mekhon, "foundation"), because all his acts are founded on justice and judgment. (See Psalms 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" (Psalms 22:3), i.e., he dwells among those praises and is continually surrounded by them.
