Wesley's Notes for Exodus 31:4


31:2 See I have called Bezaleel, the grandson of Hur, probably that Hur who had helped to hold up Moses's hand, #Ex 17:10 |- 12, and was at this time in commission with Aaron for the government of the people in the absence of Moses. Aholiab of the tribe of Dan is appointed next to Bezaleel, and partner with him. Hiram, who was the head - workman in the building of Solomon's temple, was also of the tribe of Dan, #2Chron 2:14|.

31:3 And I have filled him with the spirit of God; and #Ex 31:6|. In the hearts of all that are wise - hearted I have put wisdom. Skill in common employments is the gift of God; It is he that puts even this wisdom into the inward parts, #Job 38:36|. He teacheth the husbandman discretion, #Isa 28:26|, and the tradesman too, and he must have the praise of it.
