What is a…
footstool

The footstools mentioned in Scripture are connected with thrones (2 Chronicles 9:18).

Jehovah symbolically dwelled in the holy place between the cherubim above the ark of the covenant. This ark was His footstool (1 Chronicles 28:2; Psalm 99:5; Psa. 132:7).

And as Heaven is God’s throne, so Earth is His footstool (Psalm 110:1; Isaiah 66:1; Matthew 5:35).
