you need to tell us what's the column(s) to be linked with these first 2 tables.

In a very generic way:
UPDATE Table1
SET ColumnName = (SELECT Table2.ColumnName
                FROM Table2
                        INNER JOIN Table3 ON Table2.ID = Table3.ID)

MERGE INTO table1 a
   USING table2 b
   ON (b.col2 = a.col1)
   WHEN MATCHED THEN
      UPDATE
         SET a.col3 = b.col4

"how can i use cursor for this instead of merge'??

Do not use cursor they are costly.. Query will suffice your problem.

So where's the 3rd table in your example?
Also, MERGE means UPDATE when exists and INSERT when not.

This is different from your main question.
Please confirm what you really want.

Try something like.. Also provide table info and few rows.

;WITH CTE AS
(
	   SELECT b.col4 , b.col3
	   FROM table1 a
	   INNER JOIN table2 b
	   ON b.col1 = a.col1
)
UPDATE c
SET c.col4 = d.col4
FROM table3 c
INNER JOIN CTE d ON d.col3 = c.col3
