What does 2 Chronicles 36:17 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
2 Chronicles 36:17

Therefore he brought upon them the king of the Chaldees
Nebuchadnezzar; and though it was the rebellion of Zedekiah which was the cause and occasion of his coming against them, yet it was the Lord that moved him to it, and gave him success:

who slew their young men with the sword, in the house of the sanctuary;
in the temple, where they took sanctuary, imagining that sacred place would protect them from the rage of the enemy, but it did not:

and had no compassion on young man or maiden, old man, or him that
stooped for age;
spared none on account of age or sex, but put them all to the sword, or carried them captive:

he gave them into his hand;
that is, the Lord delivered them into the hand of the king of Babylon, for their sins.
