See also Sirach 48:10: "Scripture records that you are to come at the
appointed time to allay the divine wrath before it erupts in fury, to
reconcile father and son, and to restore the tribes of Jacob." Prior context
references Elijah and his earthly life directly. Sirach was composed in
Hebrew c. 180 BC and translated into Greek c. 132, so this reference is
definitely in the ballpark.
