Welcome to Nikolsburg

Welcome to Nikolsburg: "“And Moshe said to the Jewish people:   ‘Look, Hashem called in the name of Betzalel, the son of Uri the son of Chur of the tribe of Yehuda.’”  (Shemos 35:30)

Why does Moshe tell the Jewish people to “look”?  What was there to look at?  He should have asked them to listen to what he was saying.

It is also interesting that we do not find anywhere in the Torah how Hashem spoke to Betzalel directly. The only other mention of his appointment to construct the Mishkan is found in Parshas Ki Sisa, where the verse again uses the word “look”, as Hashem said to Moshe:  “Look, I called in the  name of Betzalel the son of Uri the son of Chur of the tribe of Yehudah.”   Once again, why does the verse use the word “look,” and where to we find that Hashem actually spoke to him?"
