  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Footstool 
  connected  with  a  throne  (2  Chr.  9:18).  Jehovah  symbolically 
  dwelt  in  the  holy  place  between  the  cherubim  above  the  ark  of 
  the  covenant.  The  ark  was  his  footstool  (1  Chr.  28:2;  Ps  99:5; 
  132:7).  And  as  heaven  is  God's  throne,  so  the  earth  is  his 
  footstool  (Ps.  110:1;  Isa.  66:1;  Matt.  5:35).
