Isaiah 48:9


48:9 For the sake of my reputation 1  I hold back my anger;

for the sake of my prestige 2  I restrain myself from destroying you. 3 

Isaiah 48:11


48:11 For my sake alone 4  I will act,

for how can I allow my name to be defiled? 5 

I will not share my glory with anyone else! 6 

1 tn Heb “for the sake of my name” (so NAB, NASB); NLT “for my own sake.”

2 tn Heb “and my praise.” לְמַעַן (lÿmaan, “for the sake of”) is understood by ellipsis (note the preceding line).

3 tn Heb “I restrain [myself] concerning you not to cut you off.”

4 tn The Hebrew text repeats לְמַעֲנִי (lÿmaani, “for my sake”) for emphasis.

5 tn The Hebrew text reads literally, “for how can it be defiled?” The subject of the verb is probably “name” (v. 9).

6 sn See 42:8.
