First Reading - Sir 48:1-4, 9-11

1And Elias the prophet stood up, as a fire, and his word burnt like a torch.
2He brought a famine upon them, and they that provoked him in their envy, were reduced to a small number, for they could not endure the commandments of the Lord.
3By the word of the Lord he shut up the heaven, and he brought down fire from heaven thrice.
4Thus was Elias magnified in his wondrous works. And who can glory like to thee?
9Who wast taken up in a whirlwind of fire, in a chariot of fiery horses.
10Who art registered in the judgments of times to appease the wrath of the Lord, to reconcile the heart of the father to the son, and to restore the tribes of Jacob.
11Blessed are they that saw thee, and were honoured with thy friendship.
