Luke 14:17

His servant (ton doulon autou). His bondservant. Vocator or Summoner ( Esther 5:8 ; Esther 6:14 ). This second summons was the custom then as now with wealthy Arabs. Tristram (Eastern Customs, p. 82) says: "To refuse the second summons would be an insult, which is equivalent among the Arab tribes to a declaration of war."
