The Lilliputians treat Gulliver as a prisoner, which he is. Sometimes the reader has a hard time understanding how these tiny people could have held him prisoner, but for whatever reason (fear, discomfort), Gulliver chooses not to use his size to his advantage. None-the-less, the Lilliputians keep him tied up with cord (later they chain him), shoot him with arrows (the blisters from these wounds are later covered with ointment), and feed him baskets full of meat and fine wine.
