Isaiah 48:9-11 Christian Standard Bible (CSB)

I will delay my anger for the sake of my name,
and I will restrain myself for your benefit and for my praise,
so that you will not be destroyed.
10 Look, I have refined you, but not as silver;
I have tested[a] you in the furnace of affliction.
11 I will act for my own sake, indeed, my own,
for how can I[b] be defiled?
I will not give my glory to another.

Isaiah 48:9-11 New International Version (NIV)

For my own name’s sake I delay my wrath;
    for the sake of my praise I hold it back from you,
    so as not to destroy you completely.
10 See, I have refined you, though not as silver;
    I have tested you in the furnace of affliction.
11 For my own sake, for my own sake, I do this.
    How can I let myself be defamed?
    I will not yield my glory to another.
