What does 1 Kings 8:50 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
1 Kings 8:50

And forgive thy people that have sinned against thee, and all
their transgressions wherein they have transgressed against thee
By returning them to their own land; by which it would appear that the Lord had forgiven their trespasses, as well as by what follows:

and give them compassion before them who carried them captive, that
they may have compassion on them;
for it is in the power of God to work upon the affections of men, and dispose their minds to use his people well, and to pity them under their distresses, as the Chaldeans did the Jews in Babylon, ( Psalms 106:46 ) .
