" . . . render unto Babylon . . . "

  • The fact that the depredations of the Babylonians had been used by God to punish evil and to bring His people to repentance in no way lessened the responsibility of the Babylonians for their wicked deeds (AA 581). Every man is held responsible for his own evil choices. Though God may overrule an evil deed for a beneficial end (Psalm 76:10), this in no way makes Him responsible for the sin. God often makes the devices of the enemy serve purposes of mercy (DA 471). (5BC 532)

" . . . in your sight . . . "

  • This verse is addressed to the Jews. (5BC 532)
