2 "See, I have chosen Bezalel son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah,

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Exodus 31:2

Commentary on Exodus 31:1-11

(Read Exodus 31:1-11)

The Israelites, who had been masons and bricklayers in Egypt, were not qualified for curious workmanship; but the Spirit who gave the apostles utterance in divers tongues, miraculously gave Bezaleel and Aholiab the skill that was wanting. The honour which comes from God, is always attended with a work to be done; to be employed for God is high honour. Those whom God calls to any service, he will find or make fit for it. The Lord gives different gifts to different persons; let each mind his proper work, diligently remembering that whatever wisdom any one possesses, the Lord put it in the heart, to do his commandments.
