New American Standard Bible
9 “(A)For the sake of My name I (B)delay My wrath,
And for My praise I restrain it for you,
In order not to cut you off.
10 “Behold, I have refined you, but (C)not as silver;
I have tested you in the (D)furnace of affliction.
11 “(E)For My own sake, for My own sake, I will act;
For how can My name be profaned?
And My (F)glory I will not give to another.
Young's Literal Translation
9 For My name's sake I defer Mine anger, And My praise I restrain for thee, So as not to cut thee off.
10 Lo, I have refined thee, and not with silver, I have chosen thee in a furnace of affliction.
11 For My sake, for Mine own sake, I do [it], For how is it polluted? And Mine honour to another I give not.Read full chapter
