Isaiah 48:9-11 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
9 I will delay My anger for the honor 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 you in the furnace of affliction.
11 I will act for My own sake, indeed, My own,
for how can I be defiled?
I will not give My glory to another.
