Then you will defile your carved idols that are overlaid with silver and your images plated with gold. You'll throw them away like disgusting objects and say to them, "Away with you!"
A clay vessel plated with a thin veneer of silver that's what smooth lips with a wicked heart are.
The words of a gossip are like delicate morsels; they sink down deep within.
1 Chronicles 29:4
3,000 gold talents imported from Ophir, 7,000 talents of refined silver for gilding the walls of the Temple
"Woe to the one who says to a tree, "Wake up!' or "Arise!' to a speechless stone. Idols like this can't teach, can they? Look, even though it is overlaid with gold and silver, there's no breath in it at all."
The sockets for the pillars were made of bronze and the hooks of the pillars and their bands were made of silver. Their tops were overlaid with silver, and all the pillars of the court were banded with silver.
Their four pillars and their four sockets were made of bronze, and their hooks were made of silver. Their tops were overlaid with silver and their bands were made of silver.
And with 1,775 talents he made hooks for the pillars, overlaid their tops, and made bands for them.
