18For the wrath of God is revealedfromheavenagainstallungodlinessandunrighteousness of men, who hold the truthinunrighteousness;19Because that which may be known of Godismanifestinthem;aforGod hath shewed it unto them.20For the invisible things of himfrom the creation of the world are clearly seen , being understood by the things that are made,evenhiseternalpowerandGodhead;sob that theyare without excuse:21Because that, when they knewGod, they glorified him notasGod,neither were thankful ; but became vainintheirimaginations,andtheirfoolishheart was darkened .
Professing themselves to bewise, they became fools ,
23Andchanged the glory of the uncorruptibleGodinto an image made like to corruptibleman,and to birds,and fourfooted beasts,and creeping things.24WhereforeGodalsogavethemuptouncleannessthrough the lusts of their ownhearts, to dishonour their ownbodiesbetweenthemselves:25Whochanged the truth of Godinto a lie,andworshippedandserved the creature more than the Creator , whoisblessedforever.Amen.26Forthis cause Godgavethemupuntovileaffections:foreventheirwomen did change the naturaluseinto that which is againstnature:27Andlikewisealso the men,leaving the naturaluse of the woman,burnedintheirlust one toward another ; menwithmenworking that which is unseemly,andreceivinginthemselves that recompence of theirerrorwhich was meet .
28And even as they didnotlike to retaincGodin their knowledge,Godgavethemoverto a reprobatemind, to do those things which arenotconvenient ;
Being filled withallunrighteousness,fornication,wickedness,covetousness,maliciousness;full of envy,murder,debate,deceit,malignity;whisperers,30Backbiters, haters of God,despiteful,proud,boasters,inventors of evil things,disobedient to parents,31
Without understanding,covenantbreakers, without natural affection,implacable,unmerciful:32Whoknowing the judgment of God,that they which commit such thingsareworthy of death,notonlydo the same,buthavepleasure in them that do them.
