Romans 1:31 Meaning and Commentary

Romans 1:31

Without understanding
Of God, of his nature and worship, of things divine and even moral, being given up to a reprobate mind:

covenant breakers;
had no regard to private or public contracts:

without natural affection;
to their parents, children, relations and friends:

when once offended there was no reconciling of them:

had no pity and compassion to persons in distress.

Romans 1:31 In-Context

29 And then all hell broke loose: rampant evil, grabbing and grasping, vicious backstabbing. They made life hell on earth with their envy, wanton killing, bickering, and cheating. Look at them: mean-spirited, venomous,
30 fork-tongued God-bashers. Bullies, swaggerers, insufferable windbags! They keep inventing new ways of wrecking lives. They ditch their parents when they get in the way.
31 Stupid, slimy, cruel, cold-blooded.
32 And it's not as if they don't know better. They know perfectly well they're spitting in God's face. And they don't care - worse, they hand out prizes to those who do the worst things best!
