What does Romans 2:8 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Romans 2:8

But unto them that are contentious
This is a description of the other sort of persons to whom God will render according to their deeds, "who are of the contention"; who contend for victory, and not truth; strive about words to no profit; are quarrelsome, and sow discord among men, and in churches;

and do not obey the truth;
neither attend to the light of nature, and to that which may be known of God by it; nor regard and submit to the Gospel revelation and so design both the Gentiles, which knew not God, and Jews, and others, who obey not the Gospel:

but obey unrighteousness;
are servants of sin: to these God renders

indignation and wrath;
wrathful or fiery indignation, the hottest of his fury.
