Because, although knowing God, they did not glorify him as God, nor were they thankful, but became vain in their reasonings and their heart was darkened without understanding.

But according to thy hardness, and thy impenitent heart, thou store up wrath to thyself in the day of wrath, and revelation, and righteous judgment of God, who will render to each man according to his works, to those who indeed seek by perseverance of good work, glory and esteem and immortality--eternal life-- but to those of self-interest, and who indeed disobey the truth but have confidence in unrighteousness--anger and wrath, pressure and restriction, upon every soul of man who produces evil, both of the Jew first, and of the Greek, but glory and esteem and peace to every man who works good, both to the Jew first, and to the Greek.
