The glory of Finnish swearing words.

that’s actually “cunt devil satan hell” and i don’t know what jumalauta means

I’m not sure about the actual etymology of the word, but intuitively I’d say that it’s words “jumala auta” fused together.

That’s exactly where it comes from. Welcome to the Finnish language, where the strongest swear word literally means “God help me”.
(And Perkele used to be the name of our chief pagan god, like a Finnish Zeus. Then Christianity took over and his name became synonomous with the devil.)
