Isaiah 48:9-11 Tree of Life Version (TLV)

For My Name’s sake I defer My anger,
for My praise I will restrain it for you—
otherwise I would cut you off.
10 Behold, I have refined you,
    though not as silver.
I tested you in the furnace of affliction.[a]
11 For My own sake, for My own sake, I act.
For how should I be profaned?
I will not give My glory to another.


  1. Isaiah 48:10 cf. 1 Pet. 1:7-9.

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.
