Bezaleel

Easton’s Bible Dictionary

Bezaleel : 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 36:1,2; 38:22). He was of the tribe of Judah, the son of Uri, and grandson of Hur (Exodus 31:2). Mention is made in Ezra 10:30 of another of the same name.
