Expertise in mining

1 There is a sure source of silver, a place where gold is refined. 2 Iron is taken from the earth; rock is smelted into copper. 3 Humansa put an end to darkness, dig for ore to the farthest depths, into stone in utter darkness, 4 open a shaft away from any inhabitant, places forgotten by those on foot, apart from any human they hang and sway. 5 Earth—from it comes food— is turned over below ground as by fire.b 6 Its rocks are the source for lapis lazuli; there is gold dust in it. 7 A path— no bird of prey knows it; a hawk's eye hasn't seen it; 8 proud beasts haven't trodden on it; a lion hasn't crossed over it. 9 Humans thrust their hands into flint, pull up mountains from their roots, 10 cut channels into rocks; their eyes see everything precious. 11 They dam up the sources of rivers; hidden things come to light.
