Isaiah 48:9-13 (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. Behold, I have refined you, though not as silver. I tested you in the furnace of affliction.
For My own sake, for My own sake, I act. For how should I be profaned? I will not give My glory to another.
Listen to Me, Jacob, Israel whom I called: I am He; I am the first; I am also the last.
