Then the Lord said to Moses, “See, I
have chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of
Judah, and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with skill,
ability and knowledge in all kinds of crafts—to make artistic
designs for work in gold, silver, and bronze, to cut and set stones,
to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of craftsmanship.”
