On account of this God gave them up to the lusts of dishonor: for indeed their women changed the natural use to that which is against nature: likewise also the men, having left the natural use of the woman, burned in their desire towards one another; men with men working out disgrace, and receiving the reward of their error among themselves which it behooved.

Tribulation and anguish upon every soul of man that is working out evil, both the Jew first, and the Greek; but glory and honor and peace to every one doing good; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek. For there is no respect of persons with God. For so many as sinned without law will also perish without law; and so many as sinned under the law shall be judged by the law; for the hearers of the law are not righteous with God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.
