Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
"For I will not contend forever, Nor will I always be angry; For the spirit would grow faint before Me, And the breath of those whom I have made.

King James Bible
For I will not contend for ever, neither will I be always wroth: for the spirit should fail before me, and the souls which I have made.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
For I will not accuse you forever, and I will not always be angry; for then the spirit would grow weak before Me, even the breath of man, which I have made.
