"1 Kings 7:23. Two things:

1)Why give me the diameter and circumference? Obviously, if I know one I know the other.

2)Why give me the wrong circumference given a 10 cubit diameter? It should be a line of 31.4 cubits to measure around it. Assuming the 10 cubits was the outer diameter.

Is this pointing to shoddy workmanship? Unlikely for the temple. I would assume they could make a true circle. Or is this a simple rounding issue for convenience of the author?"
