I do find interesting in this Psalm that He dwells between the cherubim. That is where the high priest went once a year on the great day of atonement. It was where the priest put blood between those cherubim onto the mercy seat above the ark. What seems to be significant to me is that it is as if God in the person of Christ was on that mercy seat and when He shed His own blood that vail of the most holy place was torn in two from top to bottom. There is no further need for them (statures of course) to guard the mercy seat.
There is the phrase, “God answered them” that seems to be connected with being forgiven as well. What may be in a figure in the Psalms is really in the gospels of the New Testament. That is where we can live if we put our trust in Christ.
