Jeremiah 27:6

Jeremiah 27:6

And now I have given all these lands
Before mentioned; of Edom, Moab, Ammon, Tyre, Zidon, and Judea: into the hand of Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, my servant;
whom God used as an instrument in correcting and chastising the nations; and who obeyed his will, though he knew it not; nor did what he did in obedience to it; and yet had the honour of being called his servant, and of being rewarded with a very large empire; which was owing, not so much to his prowess and valour, wisdom and management, as to the providence of God; who delivered the above kingdoms, with others, into his hands, as being the sole proprietor and sovereign disposer of them: and the beasts of the field have I given him also to serve him;
either to bring him, and his armies, and his carriages of provisions for them, and warlike stores, for the invasion and taking the above countries; or the cattle found there, which belonged to these countries, and the inhabitants thereof, which would fall into his hands with them.
