What does the word 'abode' mean?

Hi DEAR FRIENDS!
Be so kind tell me about usage word “abode”. What is it: home, house, settlement? I have doubts. To be more honesty I don’t know usage of this word.
Sincerely yours

It’s another word for dwelling or residence. It can also be the simple past form of verb to abide meaning to obey or comply.

Neither the verb to abide nor the noun abode are much used in modern English, though you will still find the latter featuring in various official and legal documents or forms - such as place of abode, or of no fixed abode to refer to someone who is homeless, or is moving from temporary address to temporary address.[YSaerTTEW443543]
