Then the LORD said to Moses,
“Look, I have specifically chosen Bezalel son of Uri, grandson of Hur, of the tribe of Judah.
I have filled him with the Spirit of God, giving him great wisdom, ability, and expertise in all kinds of crafts.
He is a master craftsman, expert in working with gold, silver, and bronze.
He is skilled in engraving and mounting gemstones and in carving wood. He is a master at every craft!
“And I have personally appointed Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan, to be his assistant. Moreover, I have given special skill to all the gifted craftsmen so they can make all the things I have commanded you to make:
the Tabernacle; the Ark of the Covenant; the Ark’s cover—the place of atonement; all the furnishings of the Tabernacle;
the table and its utensils; the pure gold lampstand with all its accessories; the incense altar;
the altar of burnt offering with all its utensils; the washbasin with its stand;
the beautifully stitched garments—the sacred garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments for his sons to wear as they minister as priests;
the anointing oil; the fragrant incense for the Holy Place. The craftsmen must make everything as I have commanded you.”
