1 Kings 7:29 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

The brazen sea (cf. 2 Chronicles 4:2-5). - "He made the molten sea - a water-basin called ים (mare) on account of its size - ten cubits from the one upper rim to the other," i.e., in diameter measured from the upper rim to the one opposite to it, "rounded all round, and five cubits its (external) height, and a line of thirty cubits encircled it round about," i.e., it was thirty cubits in circumference. The Chethib קוה is to be read קוה here and in Zechariah 1:16 and Jeremiah 31:39, for which the Keri has קו in all these passages. קוה or קו means a line for measuring, which is expressed in 1 Kings 7:15 by חוּט. The relation of the diameter to the circumference is expressed in whole numbers which come very near to the mathematical proportions. The more exact proportions would be as 7 to 22, or 113 to 355.
