The Holy Spirit in the Old Testament – Mālē

Mālē; Strong’s #4390  Mālē means to be full.

Exodus 31: 3 and 35:31 tell the story of Bezalel (1 Chronicles 2:20) of the tribe of Judah and Oholiab. Bezalel was filled with the knowledge, skill, and ability to do and teach others what needed to be done to make the Ark and Tabernacle.

Like all four of the words that are used to signify the Spirit coming on people, Mālē has other meanings/used in different applications.  The construction of the Ark and Tabernacle took a year, but you have the sense that these men were filled up and it lasted a lifetime.
