"But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner's fire and like fullers' soap. He will sit as a smelter and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the LORD offerings in righteousness.  Malachi 3:2-3

"For all of us have become like one who is unclean,
 And all our righteous deeds are like a filthy garment."  Isaiah 64:6
