God doesn't have a measuring problem. Omnipotent, omniscient,

If he has (boo! hiss!), he should indeed express it. 10+/-0.05 cubits,
or something. He didn't say that. He said 10 cubits.

Please quit flagellating the greasy spot on the dusty road where, once
upon a time, there used to lie a deceased equine.

Please, spare us from more Bible Science here. Mercy! I'd rather
search for divine messages encoded in the value of pi. I'm sure there
must be the Only One True Complete Bible in there, somewhere, along
with all the rest of divine inspirations.
