I am no preacher, but, am a prime sinner and living in this world in HIS mercy. For a sinner like me too, when I read “The Holy Bible” KJV,  the following verses were given in the context of “skill….”.

1Ki 5:6 Now therefore command thou that
they hew me cedar trees out of Lebanon;
and my servants shall be with thy servants:
and unto thee will I give hire for thy servants
according to all that thou shalt appoint:
for thou knowest that there is not among us
any that can skill to hew timber like unto the Sidonians.

2Ch 2:7 Send me now therefore
a man cunning to work in gold,
and in silver,
and in brass,
and in iron,
and in purple,
and crimson,
and blue,
and that can skill to grave with the cunning men
that are with me in Judah and in Jerusalem,
whom David my father did provide.

2Ch 2:8 Send me also cedar trees, fir trees,
and algum trees, out of Lebanon:
for I know that thy servants can
to cut timber
in Lebanon;
and, behold, my servants shall be with thy servants,

2Ch 34:12 And the men did the work faithfully:
and the overseers of them were Jahath and Obadiah,
the Levites, of the sons of Merari;
and Zechariah and Meshullam,
of the sons of the Kohathites, to set it forward;
and other of the Levites,
all that could skill of instruments of musick.

Ecc 9:11 I returned, and saw under the sun,
that the race is not to the swift,
nor the battle to the strong,
neither yet bread to the wise,
nor yet riches to men of understanding,
nor yet favour to men of skill;
but time and chance happeneth to them all.

Dan 1:6 Now among these were of the children of Judah,
Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah:
7. Unto whom the prince of the eunuchs gave names:
for he gave unto Daniel  the name of Belteshazzar;
and to Hananiah, of Shadrach;
and to Mishael, of Meshach;
and to Azariah, of Abednego.

Dan 1:17 As for these four children,
God gave them knowledge
and skill in all learning and wisdom:
and Daniel had understanding in all visions and dreams.

Dan 9:22 And he informed me,
and talked with me,
and said, O Daniel, I am now come forth
to give thee skill and understanding.
