A passage in the Bible where David uses foreskin as a form of currency. David kills 200 Philistines and brings their foreskins to Saul to buy his first wife Michal (Saul's daughter). Saul had only asked for 100 foreskins, but David was feeling rather generous.
1 Samuel 18:25-27
Saul replied, "Say to David, 'The king wants no other price for the bride than a hundred Philistine foreskins, to take revenge on his enemies.'" Saul's plan was to have David fall by the hands of the Philistines. When the attendants told David these things, he was pleased to become the king's son-in-law. So before the allotted time elapsed, David and his men went out and killed two hundred Philistines. He brought their foreskins and presented the full number to the king so that he might become the king's son-in-law. Then Saul gave him his daughter Michal in marriage.
