two corners.









(4) Two golden rings.--The golden altar was so much smaller and lighter than the brazen one that two rings only were required for carrying it, instead of the "four rings" needed by the brazen altar (Exodus 27:4).

By the two corners thereof.--Rather, on the two sides thereof. The word used means, literally, "ribs," and is explained in the clause which follows.

Verse 4. - By the two corners. Rather, "on its two sides." The ensuing clause is redundant. All that is meant is, that the altar should have two rings only - not four - one at each side, directly below the moulding. As it was so small, two rings were enough. For the staves. Rather, "for staves."
