Hi Bradford . I think you might have mixed your chapter up a bit . Have a look at 1st Samuel Ch 18 . I believe in that chapter , that Saul wanted such a ridiculous dowry for his daughter because he thought that David would be killed trying to fulfill the task .

Yes Bradford, King Saul did intend for David to be killed by the Philistines. You can read the account in 1 Samuel 18:17-29, where Saul's offer of his daughter Michal would be realized only if David went out to battle & return with proof of the death of one hundred Philistines. But David instead killed two hundred. Saul hoped that the Philistines would get the better of David & his men & that David would be killed, since Saul failed to do so in his several attempts. Saul now realized that "that the LORD was with David, and that Michal Saul's daughter loved him": verse 28.

But in the 2 Samuel 11 reference against your name, we read that King David himself behaved just as badly as his father-in-law & did sin grievously by sending Uriah into battle to have him killed because of the sin of adultery that David committed with Uriah's wife, Bathsheba. Unfortunately, on this occasion, the person sent out to battle was killed & David took Bathsheba to wife. But in 2 Samuel chapter 12, Nathan the prophet comes to David to alert him to his grievous sins (of adultery & murder) & we can also read Psalm 51 as David's declaration of repentance for his actions.
