When David was a little past the top, behold, Ziba the servant of Mephibosheth met him with a couple of donkeys saddled, and on them 200 loaves of bread and 100 clusters of raisins and 100 summer fruits, and a skin-bottle of wine. Bible

“skin-bottle.” A “bottle” or container made from animal skin. Ziba had enough food for quite a few people, and the skin-bottle could have been quite large in keeping with the rest of the food. [For more on skin-bottles, which were usually made from the skins of goats, see commentary on 1 Sam. 10:3].
