So much for the snare - David gives Saul Double what he requested

I just noticed this last week.

In 1 Samuel 18, Saul seeks the death of David by having him kill 100 Philistines as a bridal dowry for Saul's daughter, Michal (vv. 21 & 25). (Saul figured that David would be killed in fighting that many Philistines.)

David instead strikes down 200 Philistines (v. 27), twice the number that Saul requested.
