Wisdom 11:15 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

15 In return for their foolish and wicked thoughts,

you sent upon them a multitude of irrational creatures to punish them,

Wisdom 12:24-27 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

24 For they went far astray on the paths of error,
accepting as gods those animals that even their enemies[a] despised;
they were deceived like foolish infants.
25 Therefore, as though to children who cannot reason,
you sent your judgment to mock them.
26 But those who have not heeded the warning of mild rebukes
will experience the deserved judgment of God.
27 For when in their suffering they became incensed
at those creatures that they had thought to be gods, being punished by means of them,
they saw and recognized as the true God the one whom they had before refused to know.
Therefore the utmost condemnation came upon them.

Wisdom 13:10 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

The Foolishness of Idolatry

10 But miserable, with their hopes set on dead things, are those
who give the name “gods” to the works of human hands,
gold and silver fashioned with skill,
and likenesses of animals,
or a useless stone, the work of an ancient hand.

Wisdom 14:8 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

Romans 1:24-27 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the degrading of their bodies among themselves, 25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to degrading passions. Their women exchanged natural intercourse for unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men, giving up natural intercourse with women, were consumed with passion for one another. Men committed shameless acts with men and received in their own persons the due penalty for their error.

and the invention of them was the corruption of life;

Wisdom 14:24-27 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)

24 they no longer keep either their lives or their marriages pure,
but they either treacherously kill one another, or grieve one another by adultery,
25 and all is a raging riot of blood and murder, theft and deceit, corruption, faithlessness, tumult, perjury,
26 confusion over what is good, forgetfulness of favors,
defiling of souls, sexual perversion,
disorder in marriages, adultery, and debauchery.
27 For the worship of idols not to be named
is the beginning and cause and end of every evil.
