For "of ("with") cunning work" (Exodus 26:1, 31; Exodus 28:6, 15; 36:8, 35; 39:3, 8), the American Standard Revised Version has "the work of the skillful workman," the English Revised Version "of the cunning workman"; instead of "I was by him as one brought up (with him)" (Proverbs 8:30), the Revised Version (British and American) has "I was by him as a master workman.
