From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

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