Isaiah 1:25

25 a  I will turn my hand against you
and will smelt away your b  dross as with lye
and remove all your alloy.

Isaiah 42:25

25So he poured on him the heat of his anger
and the might of battle;
it set him on fire all around c  but he did not understand;
it burned him up, d  but he did not take it to heart.

Ezekiel 22:18-20

18 e  Son of man, the house of Israel has become f  dross to me; all of them are g  bronze and tin and iron and lead in the furnace; they are h  dross of silver. 19Therefore thus says the Lord  God: Because you have all become dross, therefore, behold, I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem. 20As one gathers silver and bronze and iron and lead and tin into a furnace, i  to blow the fire on it in order to melt it, so I will gather you j  in my anger and in my wrath, and I will put you in and melt you.

Ezekiel 22:22

22As silver is melted in a furnace, so you shall be melted in the midst of it, and you shall know that I am the  Lord; k  I have poured out my wrath upon you.”
