Exodus 31

Then spake Yahweh unto Moses, saying: See, I have called by name, Bezaleel, son of Uri, son of Hur of the tribe of Judah; and have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom and in understanding, and in knowledge and in all manner of workmanship; to devise skilful designs, to work in gold and in silver, and in bronze; and in the cutting of stones for setting, and in the carving of wood,—to work in all manner of workmanship, I myself, therefore, lo!
