1 Samuel 8:17

He will take the tenth of your sheep: and you shall be his servants.
All Commentaries on 1 Samuel 8:17 Go To 1 Samuel 8

John Chrysostom

AD 407
And observe the wisdom of the prophet, or rather the lovingkindness of God. For because he wished to turn them from their desire, bringing together a number of difficult things he asserted what would be true of their future king, as, for instance, that he would make their wives grind at the mill, require the men to serve as shepherds and drivers of mules; for he described all the service appertaining to the kingdom in minute detail.
