All this needs is punctuation:


"Wipe the dust from the table."


Your sentence has an unwritten subject ("You"), but that is proper.  It is a command.  The actor is the subject (both of which are the unwritten "you"), the action is to wipe.  You can either wipe dust from the table or wipe dust off of the table, although wiping dust off of the table is probably more appropriate (wiping dust from the table can technically mean that the dust you are wiping is dust that was once at, by, or in the table but is no longer there).

Wipe the dust off the table.

You dust the table. That is enough? If it is dirty, you clean the table. But when you say you wipe the table you clean it by rubbing. you may also dry it by rubbing.. so your sentence does not tell the right action.
