What does 2 Chronicles 24:24 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Chronicles 24:24

For the army of the Syrians came with a small company of men,
&c.] It consisted but of few:

and the Lord delivered a very great host into their hand;
which the king of Judah and his princes had got together to oppose them:

because they had forsaken the Lord God of their fathers;
therefore the Lord forsook them, and gave them up into the hand of their enemies:

so they executed judgment against Joash;
were the instruments God made use of to execute his vengeance on him for his idolatry and murder.
