Did Spinoza see rule by priests as a punishment?

A friend of my said that Spinoza thought that the Jewish people being ruled by priests was a punishment. I cannot find any quote of that nature? His point was that the transition from a warrior people (lead by David) to a priestly people (building of the temple) was seen as a process of decay by some scholars. Is there any evidence to support this claim?
