I do not take issue with the Bibles metaphoric use of the words "The sun rises and the sun sets", for the same reasons you do not. However, the subsequent words "and hurries back to where it rises." suggest strongly, if not conclusively, a flat earth world view. People who understand that the sun is always rising somewhere in the world are not going to state these subsequently stated words which denote a false belief that the sun only rises from one location in the world.

Also, Matthew 4:8 states as a point of fact that "the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world". As stated, I do not think these words qualify as being a metaphor. It would be like saying that the phrase "all the kingdoms of the world" was meant as a metaphor to really mean "all the kingdoms of the world". That is just plain silliness.
