Ecclus 48: 1-10

Elijah

48Then Elijah arose, a prophet like fire,
   and his word burned like a torch.
2 He brought a famine upon them,
   and by his zeal he made them few in number.
3 By the word of the Lord he shut up the heavens,
   and also three times brought down fire.
4 How glorious you were, Elijah, in your wondrous deeds!
   Whose glory is equal to yours?
5 You raised a corpse from death
   and from Hades, by the word of the Most High.
6 You sent kings down to destruction,
   and famous men, from their sickbeds.
7 You heard rebuke at Sinai
   and judgements of vengeance at Horeb.
8 You anointed kings to inflict retribution,
   and prophets to succeed you.*
9 You were taken up by a whirlwind of fire,
   in a chariot with horses of fire.
10 At the appointed time, it is written, you are destined*
   to calm the wrath of God before it breaks out in fury,
to turn the hearts of parents to their children,
   and to restore the tribes of Jacob.
