8 Yea, thou heardest not; yea, kthou knewest not;
Yea, hfrom that time that thine ear was not opened:
For I knew that thou wouldest mdeal very treacherously,
And wast called a transgressor nfrom the womb.
And for my praise will I refrain for thee,
That I cut thee not off.
I have chosen thee sin the furnace of affliction.
11 tFor mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it:
For uhow should my name be polluted?
And vI will not give my glory unto another.
