Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Exodus 31:2

_ _ See, I have called — Though the instructions about the tabernacle were privately communicated to Moses, it was plainly impossible that he could superintend the work in person, amid the multiplicity of his other duties. A head director or builder was selected by God Himself; and the nomination by such high authority removed all ground of jealousy or discontent on the part of any who might have thought their merits overlooked (compare Matthew 18:1).

_ _ by name Bezaleel — signifying “in the shadow or protection of God”; and, as called to discharge a duty of great magnitude — to execute a confidential trust in the ancient Church of God, he has his family and lineage recorded with marked distinction. He belonged to the tribe of Judah, which, doubtless for wise and weighty reasons, God all along delighted to honor; and he was the grandson of Hur, a pious patriot (Exodus 17:12), who was associated, by a special commission, with Aaron in the government of the people during the absence of Moses. Moreover, it may be noticed that a Jewish tradition affirms Hur to be the husband of Miriam; and if this tradition may be relied on, it affords an additional reason for the appointment of Bezaleel emanating from the direct authority of God.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Exodus 31:2

See I have called Bezaleel, the grandson of Hur, probably that Hur who had helped to hold up Moses's hand, Exodus 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, 2 Chronicles 2:14.
