The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

2:8 the gold is mine. This may be an incidental reference to the incredible wealth of ornamental beauty that characterized Solomon’s original temple. But it also was a pertinent reminder to the Jews with their “cieled houses” (Haggai 1:4) that all the world’s wealth was created by God and still belongs to Him. He can both give it and take it away! We need the same reminder today.
