    Sabra: when we were kids we would tell a story and swear by our mothers grave or that Lightning would strike us down, if it's a lie. I'll curse you with the fleas of a thousand camels if you don't believe me! Adults do the same. I swear I would never---! They say these things to make it more believable. That's what Peter was doing, not using foul language.

    Hello, Sabra Matt.5:36 is by scripture that it is above mankind pay grade to sware by anything. V37 explains that fact.
