For the Lord your God is bringing you into a good land, a land with streams of water, springs, and deep water sources, flowing in both valleys and hills; a land of wheat, barley, vines, figs, and pomegranates; a land of olive oil and honey; a land where you will eat food without shortage, where you will lack nothing; a land whose rocks are iron and from whose hills you will mine copper.

Job 28:2-10

Iron is taken from the ground,
and copper is smelted from ore. A miner puts an end to the darkness;

for ore in the gloomy darkness. He cuts a shaft far from human habitation,
in places unknown to those who walk above ground.
Suspended far away from people,
the miners swing back and forth.read more.
Food may come from the earth,
but below the surface the earth is transformed as by fire. Its rocks are a source of sapphire,
containing flecks of gold. No bird of prey knows that path;
no falcon’s eye has seen it. Proud beasts have never walked on it;
no lion has ever prowled over it. The miner strikes the flint
and transforms the mountains at their foundations. He cuts out channels in the rocks,
and his eyes spot every treasure.
