Isaiah 48:9-11 New Century Version (NCV)

But for my own sake I will be patient.
    People will praise me for not becoming angry
    and destroying you.
10 I have made you pure, but not by fire, as silver is made pure.
    I have purified you by giving you troubles.
11 I do this for myself, for my own sake.
    I will not let people speak evil against me,
    and I will not let some god take my glory.

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.

Isaiah 48:9-11 King James Version (KJV)

For my name's sake will I defer mine anger, and for my praise will I refrain for thee, that I cut thee not off.

10 Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.

11 For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another.
