Sirach 48: 4, 9-11


4 How glorious you were, Elijah, in your wondrous deeds!
   Whose glory is equal to yours?
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.
11 Happy are those who saw you
   and were adorned* with your love!
   For we also shall surely live.*

2 Kings 2: 9-12

When they had crossed, Elijah said to Elisha, ‘Tell me what I may do for you, before I am taken from you.’ Elisha said, ‘Please let me inherit a double share of your spirit.’ 10He responded, ‘You have asked a hard thing; yet, if you see me as I am being taken from you, it will be granted you; if not, it will not.’ 11As they continued walking and talking, a chariot of fire and horses of fire separated the two of them, and Elijah ascended in a whirlwind into heaven. 12Elisha kept watching and crying out, ‘Father, father! The chariots of Israel and its horsemen!’ But when he could no longer see him, he grasped his own clothes and tore them in two pieces.
