Romans 1:26-32 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

From Idolatry to Depravity

26 This is why God delivered them over to degrading passions. For even their females exchanged natural sexual relations[a] for unnatural ones. 27 The males in the same way also left natural relations[b] with females and were inflamed in their lust for one another. Males committed shameless acts with males and received in their own persons[c] the appropriate penalty of their error.

28 And because they did not think it worthwhile to acknowledge God, God delivered them over to a worthless mind to do what is morally wrong. 29 They are filled with all unrighteousness,[d] evil, greed, and wickedness. They are full of envy, murder, quarrels, deceit, and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, arrogant, proud, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving,[e] and unmerciful. 32 Although they know full well God’s just sentence—that those who practice such things deserve to die[f]—they not only do them, but even applaud[g] others who practice them.
