Here it appears, that God sent him, and God performed the work; which could not have been the case, unless God caused him to do it. And the Assyrian is represented as much God's instrument, and as much moved by him in all this business, as the rod, and the saw, and the axe, by the hand of the workman. (See the whole passage.)
