Isaiah 48:9-11 New English Translation (NET Bible)
9 For the sake of my reputation I hold back my anger;
for the sake of my prestige I restrain myself from destroying you.
10 Look, I have refined you, but not as silver;
I have purified you in the furnace of misery.
11 For my sake alone I will act,
for how can I allow my name to be defiled?
I will not share my glory with anyone else!
