24 Therefore 1God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to 2the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves,
25 because they exchanged the truth about God for 3a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, 4who is blessed forever! Amen.
26 For this reason 5God gave them up to 6dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature;
27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, 7men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.
28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, 8God gave them up to 9a debased mind to do 10what ought not to be done.
29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips,
30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents,
31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless.
32 Though they know 11God's decree that those who practice such things 12deserve to die, they not only do them but 13give approval to those who practice them.
