and 1exchanged the glory of the incorruptibleGod for an image in the form of corruptibleman and of birds and four-footedanimals and acrawlingcreatures.
24Therefore2Godgave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be 3dishonoredamong them.
For they exchanged the truth of God for ba 4lie, and worshiped and served the creatureratherthan the Creator, 5who is blessedcforever. Amen.
For thisreason6Godgave them over to 7degradingpassions ; for their womenexchanged the naturalfunction for that which is dunnatural ,
and in the samewayalso the menabandoned the naturalfunction of the woman and burned in their desiretowardoneanother, 8men with mencommittingeindecentacts and receiving in ftheir ownpersons the duepenalty of their error.
And just as they did not seefitgto acknowledgeGod any longer, 9Godgave them over to a depravedmind, to dothose things which are not proper,
being filled with allunrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil ; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice ; they are 10gossips,
30slanderers, h11haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, 12disobedient to parents,
31withoutunderstanding, untrustworthy, 13unloving, unmerciful ;
and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practicesuchthings are worthy of 14death, they not onlydo the same, but also15giveheartyapproval to those who practice them.
