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 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,
30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents;
31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy.
32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
