(12) Four rings of gold.--Though the ark was not to be carried in procession, like Egyptian arks, yet it would have to be carried when the Israelites resumed their journeyings. The four rings were made to receive the two "staves" or poles by which the ark was to be borne at such times on the shoulders of the priests (Exodus 25:13-14).

In the four corners thereof.--Literally, at the four feet thereof. The rings were to be affixed, not at the four upper corners of the chest, but at the four bottom corners, in order that the ark, when carried on men's shoulders, might be elevated above them, and so be in no danger of coming in contact with the bearers' persons. The arrangement might seem to endanger the equilibrium of the ark when carried; but as Kalisch observes, "the smallness of the dimensions of the ark rendered its safe transportation, even with the rings at its feet, not impossible."

Verse 12. - Four rings of gold. These rings were to be fixed, not at the upper, but at the lower corners of the chest, which are called pa'amoth, literally "feet" or "bases." The object was, no doubt, that no part of the chest should come in contact with the persons of the priests when carrying it (see ver. 14). As Kalisch notes, "the smallness of the dimensions of the ark rendered its safe transportation, even with the rings at its feet, not impossible."
