Sirach 48:2-4 Revised Standard Version (RSV)
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, O Eli′jah, in your wondrous deeds!
And who has the right to boast which you have?
