Ben Sira 48:2-8 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
2 The staff of life, their bread, he shattered,
and in his zeal he made them few in number.
3 By God’s word he shut up the heavens
and three times brought down fire.
4 How awesome are you, Elijah!
Whose glory is equal to yours?
5 You brought a dead body back to life
from Sheol, by the will of the Lord.
6 You sent kings down to destruction,
and nobles, from their beds of sickness.
7 You heard threats at Sinai,
at Horeb avenging judgments.
8 You anointed the agent of these punishments,
the prophet to succeed in your place.
