Bezaleel [H] [S]

in the shadow of God; i.e., "under his protection", the artificer who executed the work of art in connection with the tabernacle in the wilderness ( Exodus 31:2 ; 35:30 ). He was engaged principally in works of metal, wood, and stone; while Aholiab, who was associated with him and subordinate to him, had the charge of the textile fabrics ( Exodus 36:1 Exodus 36:2 ; 38:22 ). He was of the tribe of Judah, the son of Uri, and grandson of Hur ( 31:2 ). Mention is made in Ezra 10:30 of another of the same name.
