The Bible in Its Traditions

Sirach 48:12–14


12  For we live only in our life, and after death, our name will not be the same.


13  Certainly, Elijah was covered by the whirlwind, and his spirit was completed in Elisha. In his days, he was not fearful of the ruler, and no power defeated him.

Sir48:12  Elias it was, who was covered with a whirlwind: and Eliseus was filled with his spirit: whilst he lived, he was not moved with the presence of any prince, neither could any bring him into subjection.

14  No word overwhelmed him, and after death, his body prophesied.

Sir48:13  No word could overcome him; and after his death his body prophesied.
