The Key People include Moshe (Moses), B’tsal’el (Bezalel),Oholi’av (Oholiab), people of Yisra’el (Israel), Aharon (Aaron), and Y’hoshua (Joshua).

Then Adonai descended in the cloud, stood with him there, as he called on the Name of Adonai. Then Adonai passed before him, and proclaimed, “Adonai, Adonai, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, and abundant in lovingkindness and truth, showing mercy to a thousand generations, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, yet by no means leaving the guilty unpunished, but bringing the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, to the third and fourth generation.” Then Moses quickly bowed his head down to the earth and worshipped.
(Exodus 34:5-8 TLV)
Now it was at the time of offering up the evening sacrifice that Elijah the prophet came near and said, “Adonai, God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that You are God in Israel, that I am Your servant, and that I have done all these things at Your word. Answer me, Adonai, answer me, so that these people may know that You, Adonai, are God, and that You have turned their heart back again.” Then the fire of Adonai fell and consumed the burnt offering—and the wood, the stones and the dust—and licked up the water that was in the trench. When all the people saw it, they fell on their faces, and they said, “Adonai, He is God! Adonai, He is God!”
(1 Kings 18:36-39 TLV)
The Brit Chadasha
Now Yeshua was driving out a demon, and it was mute. When the demon had gone out, the mute one spoke and the crowds were amazed.
(Luke 11:14 TLV)
