And he said, “This will be the way of the king who will reign over you:
He will take your sons and appoint them for himself for his chariots and to be his horsemen, and they will run before his chariots. Bible other translations

“he will take.” This so well reflects what happens with the government. They take. The word “take” is used much in the next few verses.
