21 For though they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or show gratitude. Instead, their thinking became nonsense, and their senseless minds were darkened. b 22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools c 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man, birds, four-footed animals, and reptiles. d
24 Therefore God delivered them over in the cravings of their hearts e to sexual impurity, so that their bodies were degraded among themselves. 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, f and worshiped and served something created instead of the Creator, who is praised forever. g * Amen.
