CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Solomon sent and fetched Hiram out of Tyre - This was not the Tyrian king, mentioned before, but a very intelligent coppersmith, of Jewish extraction by his mother's side, who was probably married to a Tyrian.

This appears to be the best solution of the difficulty. The versions and MSS. give no help here.

and I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills--
and he has filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom, with understanding, with knowledge and with all kinds of skills--
He has filled them with skill to do all kinds of work as engravers, designers, embroiderers in blue, purple and scarlet yarn and fine linen, and weavers--all of them skilled workers and designers.
So Bezalel, Oholiab and every skilled person to whom the LORD has given skill and ability to know how to carry out all the work of constructing the sanctuary are to do the work just as the LORD has commanded."
