Breadcrumb: Now that's a recommendation!
In Ex. 31:1-11, God appoints Bezaleel to be the chief craftsman for all the work the Israelites are about to undertake, assisted by Aholiab. Their job will be to build the tabernacle, its furniture, the clothing for the priests, the oils and incense, and everything else needed for the most holy place in the Israelite camp. They need to be carpenters, metal-smiths, tailors, embroiderers, and gem-cutters, among other things. It's a huge load for two people, even if they delegated. But you'd better believe that once they were done building the tabernacle, they'd never be out of work.
