1:21 For although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God or give him thanks, but they became futile in their thoughts and their senseless hearts 1 were darkened. 1:22 Although they claimed 2 to be wise, they became fools 1:23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an image resembling mortal human beings 3 or birds or four-footed animals 4 or reptiles.
1:24 Therefore God gave them over 5 in the desires of their hearts to impurity, to dishonor 6 their bodies among themselves. 7 1:25 They 8 exchanged the truth of God for a lie 9 and worshiped and served the creation 10 rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
