John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

1 Kings 7:24

Knops — Carved or molten figures: for this word signifies figures or pictures of all sorts. Ten, &c. — So there were three hundred in all. Cast — Together with the sea; not carved. Two rows — It seems doubtful whether the second row had ten in each cubit, and so there were three hundred more; or, whether the ten were distributed into five in each row.
