An established emblem of kingly dignity and power, used by sovereigns on all stale occasions. That of Solomon was of ivory, overlaid with gold; having six broad steps, every one guarded by a golden lion at each end, 1 Kings 10:18-20 . Heaven is called God's throne, and the earth his footstool, Isaiah 66:1 . His throne is also sublimely described as everlasting, and as built upon justice and equity, Psalm 45:6 ; 97:2 . See also Isaiah 6:2-4 ; Ezekiel 1:1 - 28 . Christ is on the throne forever, as the King of heaven, Psalm 110:1 ; Hebrews 1:8 ; Revelation 3:21 ; and his faithful disciples will partake of his kingly glory, Luke 22:30 ; Revelation 4:4 ; 5:10 . He forbade men lightly to swear by heaven or its throne, as they were thus irreverent to God, Matthew 5:34 ; 23:22 .
