But I wrought for my name's sake, that it should not be polluted before the heathen, in whose sight I brought them out.

For I will defend this city to save it for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake.
For my name's sake will I defer mine anger, and for my praise will I refrain for thee, that I cut thee not off.
