footstool

connected with a throne (2 Chronicles 9:18)

Jehovah symbolically dwelt in the holy place between the cherubim above the ark of the covenant. The ark was his footstool (1 Chronicles 28:2; Psalms 99:5; 132:7).

And as heaven is God’s throne, so the Earth is his footstool (Psalms 110:1; Isaiah 66:1; Matthew 5:35).
