The number Pi in the Bible appears as the number 3, and some justify the, so to say, lack of mathematical knowledge by the representatives of God on Earth, stating that the Bible is not a science book. It represents **The ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter.** Its importance is immense since every measure of space implies its existence and accurate knowledge, and it appears too, recurrently, in trigonometry, it is related to the Neperian number and imaginary numbers (exp(i Pi)+1=0), and mathematics of probability.

This number appears in the Book of the Kings.

##### 1 Kings 7:23 King James

«And he made a molten sea, ten cubits from the one brim to the other: it was round all about, and his height was five cubits: and a line of thirty cubits did compass it round about.»

According to Ref.[1], the historical record of the computation of number Pi from 2000 BC to now has the following order:
