Ben Sira 49:7-10 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
7 As foretold by Jeremiah. They mistreated him
who even in the womb had been made a prophet,
To root out, pull down, and destroy,
and then to build and to plant.
8 Ezekiel beheld a vision
and described the different creatures of the chariot;
9 He also referred to Job,
who always persevered in the right path.
10 Then, too, the Twelve Prophets—
may their bones flourish with new life where they lie!—
They gave new strength to Jacob
and saved him with steadfast hope.
