Deuteronomy 8:7-9

For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and springs, flowing forth in valleys and hills; A land of wheat and barley, and vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive trees and honey; A land in which you shall eat food without shortage and lack nothing in it; a land whose stones are iron and out of whose hills you can dig copper.

Job 28:2-10

Iron is taken out of the earth, and copper is smelted from the stone ore. Man sets an end to darkness, and he searches out the farthest bounds for the ore buried in gloom and deep darkness. Men break open shafts away from where people sojourn, in places forgotten by [human] foot; and [descend into them], hanging afar from men, they swing or flit to and more.
As for the earth, out of it comes bread, but underneath [its surface, down deep in the mine] there is blasting, turning it up as by fire. Its stones are the bed of sapphires; it holds dust of gold [which he wins]. That path no bird of prey knows, and the falcon's eye has not seen it. The proud beasts [and their young] have not trodden it, nor has the fierce lion passed over it. Man puts forth his hand upon the flinty rock; he overturns the mountains by the roots. He cuts out channels and passages among the rocks; and his eye sees every precious thing.

Ezekiel 22:20-21

As they gather silver and bronze and iron and lead and tin into the midst of the furnace, to blow the fire upon it in order to melt it, so will I gather you in My anger and in My wrath, and I will put you in and melt you. Yes, I will gather you and blow upon you with the fire of My wrath, and you shall be melted in the midst of it.

Ezekiel 22:18

Son of man, the house of Israel has become to Me scum and waste matter. All of them are bronze and tin and iron and lead in the midst of the furnace; they are the dross of silver.

Then set [the pot Jerusalem] back empty upon the coals, that the bronze of it may be hot and may glow and the filthiness of it may be melted in it and the rust and scum of it may be consumed.

Matthew 10:9

Take no gold nor silver nor [even] copper money in your purses (belts);

Mark 12:41-42

And He sat down opposite the treasury and saw how the crowd was casting money into the treasury. Many rich [people] were throwing in large sums. And a widow who was poverty-stricken came and put in two copper mites [the smallest of coins], which together make half of a cent.

Luke 21:1-2

Looking up, [Jesus] saw the rich people putting their gifts into the treasury. And He saw also a poor widow putting in two mites (copper coins).
