And Cyrus brought forth the vessels of the house of the Lord,
&c.] Or ordered them to be brought forth:
which Nebuchadnezzar had brought forth out of Jerusalem;
out of the temple there, when he took it and burnt it:
and had put them in the house of his gods;
in the temple of Belus at Babylon, see ( 2 Chronicles 36:7 ) ( Daniel 1:2 ) ( Daniel 5:2 Daniel 5:3 ) , by which means they were providentially preserved.
