Job 28:1-8

1 "There are mines where silver is found. There are places where gold is purified.
2 Iron is taken out of the earth. Copper is melted down from ore.
3 A miner lights up the darkness. He searches for ore in the deepest pits. He looks for it in the blackest darkness.
4 Far from where people live he cuts a tunnel. He does it in places where others don't go. Far away from people he swings back and forth on ropes.
5 Food grows on the surface of the earth. But far below, the earth is changed as if by fire.
6 Sapphires are taken from its rocks. Its dust contains nuggets of gold.
7 No bird knows the miner's hidden path. No falcon's eye has seen it.
8 Proud animals don't walk on it. Lions don't prowl there.
