"Surely there is a mine for silver, and a place for gold which they refine.
The name of the first is Pishon; this is the one which goes around the whole land of Havilah, where there is gold;
"My lord, listen to me. What is a piece of land worth four hundred shekels of silver between me and you? Therefore bury your dead."
It happened, as the camels had done drinking, that the man took a golden ring of half a shekel weight, and two bracelets for her hands of ten shekels weight of gold,
Solomon made all the vessels that were in the house of the LORD: the golden altar, and the table whereupon the show bread was, of gold;
All king Solomon's drinking vessels were of gold, and all the vessels of the house of the forest of Lebanon were of pure gold: none were of silver; it was nothing accounted of in the days of Solomon.
Now I have prepared with all my might for the house of my God the gold for the things of gold, and the silver for the things of silver, and the brass for the things of brass, the iron for the things of iron, and wood for the things of wood; onyx stones, and stones to be set, stones for inlaid work, and of various colors, and all kinds of precious stones, and marble stones in abundance.
The words of the LORD are flawless words, as silver refined in a clay furnace, purified seven times.
The refining pot is for silver, and the furnace for gold, but the LORD tests the hearts.
The crucible is for silver, and the furnace for gold; but man is refined by his praise.
Behold, I have refined you, but not as silver; I have chosen you in the furnace of affliction.
I will bring the third part into the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will test them like gold is tested. They will call on my name, and I will hear them. I will say, 'It is my people;' and they will say, 'The LORD is my God.'"
"But who can endure the day of his coming? And who will stand when he appears? For he is like a refiner's fire, and like launderer's soap;
that the genuineness of your faith, which is more precious than gold that perishes even though it is tested by fire, may be found to result in praise, glory, and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ?
