Bezaʹliel

,

in the satire of Absalom and Achitophel, by Dryden and Tate, is meant for the Marquis of Worcester, afterwards Duke of Beaufort.

“Bezaliel with each grace and virtue fraught,

Serene his looks, serene his life and thought;

On whom so largely Nature heaped her store,

There scarce remained for arts to give him more.”


Part ii. 947–56.
