What does the Bible say about “home”?

Daniel 6:10 (NIV)    
 10  Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his
           upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day
          he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had
         done before.

Zephaniah 3:20 (NIV)       
 20  At that time I will gather you;  at that time I will bring you home.
       I will give you honor and praise among all the peoples of the earth
       when I restore your fortunes before your very eyes," says the LORD.

Hebrews 11:9 (NIV)     
9  By faith he made his home in the promised land like a stranger in a foreign country;
     he lived in tents, as did Isaac and Jacob, who were heirs with him of the same promise.

2 Peter 3:13 (NIV)     
13  But in keeping with his promise we are looking forward to a new heaven and a
         new earth, the home of righteousness.
