  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
  (Mark  7:4)  means  banqueting-couches  or  benches,  on  which  the 
  Jews  reclined  when  at  meals.  This  custom,  along  with  the  use  of 
  raised  tables  like  ours  was  introduced  among  the  Jews  after  the 
  Captivity.  Before  this  they  had  properly  speaking,  no  table. 
  That  which  served  the  purpose  was  a  skin  or  piece  of  leather 
  spread  out  on  the  carpeted  floor.  Sometimes  a  stool  was  placed 
  in  the  middle  of  this  skin.  (See  ABRAHAM'S  {BOSOM}; 
  {BANQUET};  {MEALS}.)
