As far as I have seen, Marx uses the expression in 2 places in Capital I:
p. 742 and p. 937, footnote.

According to an editor's note in one Spanish translation of Capital (Siglo
XXI), the expression means: "This is the essential, this is the rule you
have to follow!" The biblical reference is Luke XVI, 29-31.
