I was right with you until the bible part. Not starting a conflict by any means, but just asking ....what?My line about straining at a gnat and swallowing a camel was from the Bible... Bartlett's says Matthew, but .... more than that I cannot say.
It's interesting btw that at the top of the same page there's another camel reference from the bible -- I suppose there were a lot of camels in Biblical lands: "It's easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." (That of course says nothing about rich women, who may sashay into heaven in droves.)
That reference is also from Matthew -- which somehow I take for Old Testament. (My favorite -- and the only part of the Bible I know well is Genesis 2, which explains why naive folks oppose abortion... as I fully explicate in a chapter titled "The Abortion Wars" in last year's book "[Read My T-shirt] for President, a true history of the political front and back.")
