Surely at the commandment of the Lord came this upon Judah, to
remove them out of his sight
It was the sure and certain decree of God they should be carried captive, and therefore he stirred up the spirit of Nebuchadnezzar, and gave him orders to go against it:
for the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he did;
which were still continued among the Jews, and committed by them, though repented of by Manasseh, and he returned from them.
