The golden table (Ex 37:10-37:16)

“He also made the table of acacia wood, two cubits long, one cubit wide, and a cubit and a half high.  He overlaid it with pure gold, and made a molding of gold around it.  He made around it a rim, a handbreadth wide, and made a molding of gold around the rim.   He cast for it four rings of gold, and fastened the rings to the four corners at its four legs.   The rings that held the poles used for carrying the table were close to the rim.  He made the poles of acacia wood to carry the table, and overlaid them with gold.  He made the vessels of pure gold that were to be on the table, its plates and dishes for incense, and its bowls and flagons with which to pour drink offerings.”

Next the artisan, not specifically Bezalel, made an acacia wooden table that is along the lines in chapter 25, very small, approximately 4’ long, 2’ wide, and 3’ high.  He overlaid it with gold, and a gold molding.  He also put four golden rings on the four corner legs.  These four golden rings were close to the rim, so that the two golden acacia poles could be used to carry this small table. All the vessels on this table, plates, dishes, and bowls were made of pure gold.
