Easton's Bible DictionaryGod 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, Hebrews 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.
Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary1. (n.) The act of inhabiting; state of inhabiting or dwelling, or of being inhabited; occupancy.
