Treasury of Scripture

Over against the border shall the rings be for places of the staves to bear the table.

for places of the staves

Exodus 25:14,28
And thou shalt put the staves into the rings by the sides of the ark, that the ark may be borne with them…











(27) Over against the border shall the rings be.--Rather, opposite the band, or framing. The meaning is not very clear. If the framing had been at the bottom of the legs, we might have understood that the rings were attached to the table opposite the places where the "framing" was inserted into the legs. But the "framing" appears to have been halfway up the legs (see Note on Exodus 25:25), while the rings were at the bottom. They could therefore have only been "opposite the framing" in a loose and vague sense.

For places of the staves.--Rather, for places for staves.

Verse 27. - Over against the border. Rather "opposite the band" or "framing" - i.e., opposite the points at which the "band" or "framing" was inserted into the legs. Bishop Patrick supposes that the table "was not carried up as high as the ark was, but hung down between the priests, on whose shoulders the staves rested." But it is carried upright in the bas-relief on the Arch of Titus, and might have been as easily so carried as the ark. (See the comment on ver. 12.) Of the staves. Rather, "for staves." Staves for the table had not yet been mentioned; and naturally the word has no article.
