Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over1 to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.
They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips,230
slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents;331
they are senseless, faithless, heartless,4 ruthless.
Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death,5 they not only continue to do these very things but also approve6 of those who practice them.
