Habitation

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 Psalms 132:13 ; 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.
