  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Habitation 
  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
