What does Nehemiah 9:31 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Nehemiah 9:31

Nevertheless, for thy great mercies' sake,
For the displaying of that, and the glorifying of it, which is so large and exceeding abundant:

thou didst not utterly consume them, nor forsake them;
some were left in the land, and those that were carried captive found favour in the eyes of those that carried them away, and were suffered to live, and many of them now had returned to their own land:

for thou art a gracious and merciful God;
of which they had abundant proof and evidence.
