John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Psalms 106:46

He made them also to be pitied of all those that carried them
captives.
] He not only pitied them himself, but caused them to be pitied by others, even by their enemies; he has the hearts of all men in his hands, and can turn them as he pleases; as he sometimes turned their hearts to hate his people, ( Psalms 105:25 ) , so he turned them to pity them, as he promised he would when they turned to him, ( 2 Chronicles 30:9 ) , so he did, by stirring up Cyrus to proclaim liberty to them, and his successors to encourage and assist in rebuilding their city and temple.
