Exodus 31:1-11 provides information regarding the artisans who would actually construct the tabernacle and items therein:
"Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: 'See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah. And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, to design artistic works, to work in gold, in silver, in bronze, in cutting jewels for setting, in carving wood, and to work in all manner of workmanship. And I, indeed I, have appointed with him Aholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and I have put wisdom in the hearts of all the gifted artisans, that they may make all that I have commanded you: the tabernacle of meeting, the ark of the Testimony and the mercy seat that is on it, and all the furniture of the tabernacle--the table and its utensils, the pure gold lampstand with all its utensils, and the laver and its base--the garments of ministry, the holy garments for Aaron the priest and the garments of his son, to minister as priests, and the anointing oil and sweet incense for the holy place. According to all that I have commanded you they shall do." God, through His Spirit, made these artisans capable of fashioning what He wanted, and they were limited to what God commanded (not their own creativity or imagination). They brought glory to God by using their talents in harmony with the divine will--and so it is today!
And the chapter closes with Exodus 31:18 - "And when He had made an end of speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave Moses two tablets of the Testimony, tablets of stone, written with the finger of God." The divine pattern had been given, and the question then became: Would Israel follow it? Would Israel make the tabernacle according to the pattern and shape their lives around the standard Jehovah had revealed?
