Weird Bible Verse #5: 200 Tips On How To…

David killed and brought

Two hundred bloody foreskins

For King Saul’s daughter


…therefore David arose and went, he and his men, and killed two hundred men of the Philistines. And David brought their foreskins, and they gave them in full count to the king, that he might become the king’s son-in-law. Then Saul gave him Michal his daughter as a wife.

1 Samuel 18:27 NKJV

Here’s a really weird story and the really weird thing is that some Bible versions, such as the NRSV, say 100 foreskins. But, that’s just part of sifting your way through a confusing Bible. This happened after David killed Goliath so killing 200 Philistines was a piece of cake. Quick joke for you! What did King Saul do with all those foreskins? He had them made into a wallet so that when he rubbed it vigorously, it turned into a suitcase! Get it? Kind of a dual-function thing. I know, not that funny! Ha!
