(25) A border of a hand-breadth.--Rather, a band, or framing. The representation of the table of shewbread on the Arch of Titus at Rome gives the best idea of this "band" or framing. It was a flat bar about midway between the top of the table and its feet, connecting the four legs together, and so keeping them in place. Its "golden crown," or "edging," can have been only for ornament.

Verse 25. - A border of a hand-breadth. Rather "a band" or "framing." This seems to have been a broad flat bar, placed about hallway down the legs, uniting them and holding them together. It was represented in the sculpture of the table which adorned the Arch of Titus. (See the Speaker's Commentary, vol. 1. p. 363.) A golden crown to the border - i.e., an edging at the top of the bar, which could be only for ornament.
