Ben Sira 48:9-12 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
9 You were taken aloft in a whirlwind,
in a chariot with fiery horses.
10 You are destined, it is written, in time to come
to put an end to wrath before the day of the Lord,
To turn back the hearts of parents toward their children,
and to re-establish the tribes of Israel.
11 Blessed is the one who shall have seen you before he dies!
12 When Elijah was enveloped in the whirlwind,
Elisha was filled with his spirit;
He worked twice as many marvels,
and every utterance of his mouth was wonderful.
During his lifetime he feared no one,
nor was anyone able to intimidate his will.
