Hi,


What does "call down curses on oneself"?
Does it mean swear like this "if I tell a lie, may I be punished by God" ?

    Thank you very much.

    I saw a sentence in Matthew 26:74 which goes like this: when Peter was cornered again and again, he called down curses on himself and said "I don't know Him".
