Romans 1:16-26 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
16 I am not ashamed of the gospel,1 because it is the power of God2 for the salvation of everyone who believes:3 first for the Jew,4 then for the Gentile.5 17 For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed,6 a righteousness that is by faith7 from first to last,a just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith."b8

God's Wrath Against Mankind

18 The wrath of God9 is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.10 20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made,11 so that men are without excuse.12 21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.13 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools14 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images15 made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. 24 Therefore God gave them over16 in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.17 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie,18 and worshiped and served created things19 rather than the Creator--who is forever praised.20 Amen.21 26 Because of this, God gave them over22 to shameful lusts.23 Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.24
