The workers at the sanctuary (Ex 35:30-35:35)

“Then Moses said to the Israelites.  ‘See, Yahweh has called by name Bezalel son of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah.  He has filled him with the divine spirit, with skill, intelligence, and knowledge in every kind of craft, to devise artistic designs, to work in gold, silver and bronze, in cutting stones for setting, and in carving wood, in every kind of craft.  He has inspired him to teach, both him and Oholiab son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan.  He has filled them with skill to do every sort of work done by an artisan or by a designer or by an embroiderer in blue, purple and crimson yarns, and in fine linen, or by a weaver.  This can be done by any sort of artisan or skilled designer.”

Once again, as in chapter 31, two people were chosen to do certain artistic holy work.  The one craftsman for the artistic designs was Bezalel, son of Uri, from the tribe of Judah.  He was filled him with a divine spirit, with ability, intelligence, and knowledge in very kind of craft. The other appointed one was Oholiab, son of Abisamach, of the tribe of Dan.  They were going to teach and make all the things that Yahweh had commanded. Notice they are already in tribes.
