SEV Biblia, Chapter 8:12 Y se elegirá capitanes de mil, y capitanes de cincuenta; los pondrá asimismo a que aren sus campos, y sieguen sus mieses, y a que hagan sus armas de guerra, y los pertrechos de sus carros.
John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 12. And he will appoint him captains over thousands, and captains over fifties , etc.] Which though posts of honour, yet when they are not matter of choice, and especially being precarious, and depending on the arbitrary will of a prince, are not eligible, and less so to persons that choose another sort of life: and [will set] them to ear his ground ; to plough it; not the same persons made captains of thousands and fifties, but others, whom he will employ in tilling and manuring his fields, and oblige them to it: and to reap his harvest ; when it is ripe, and gather it in, and bring it home into his barns and garners: and to make his instruments of war : as swords, spears, bows and arrows, most commonly used in those times: and instruments of chariots ; which seem to design chariots of war, and the iron spikes and scythes which were joined to them, to cut down the foot soldiers, when driven among them in battle, which are commonly called chariots of iron; (see Joshua 17:16 Judges 4:3).
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 10-22 - If they would have a king to rule them, as the eastern kings rule their subjects, they would find the yoke exceedingly heavy. Those tha submit to the government of the world and the flesh, are told plainly what hard masters they are, and what tyranny the dominion of sin is The law of God and the manner of men widely differ from each other; the former should be our rule in the several relations of life; the latte should be the measure of our expectations from others. These would by their grievances, and, when they complained to God, he would not hea them. When we bring ourselves into distress by our own wrong desire and projects, we justly forfeit the comfort of prayer, and the benefi of Divine aid. The people were obstinate and urgent in their demand Sudden resolves and hasty desires make work for long and leisurel repentance. Our wisdom is, to be thankful for the advantages, an patient under the disadvantages of the government we may live under and to pray continually for our rulers, that they may govern us in the fear of God, and that we may live under them in all godliness an honesty. And it is a hopeful symptom when our desires of worldl objects can brook delay; and when we can refer the time and manner of their being granted to God's providence __________________________________________________________________
