Romans 1:24-26

Context

1:24 Therefore God gave them over 1  in the desires of their hearts to impurity, to dishonor 2  their bodies among themselves. 3  1:25 They 4  exchanged the truth of God for a lie 5  and worshiped and served the creation 6  rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.

1:26 For this reason God gave them over to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged the natural sexual relations for unnatural ones, 7 

1 sn Possibly an allusion to Ps 81:12.

2 tn The genitive articular infinitive τοῦ ἀτιμάζεσθαι (tou atimazesqai, “to dishonor”) has been taken as (1) an infinitive of purpose; (2) an infinitive of result; or (3) an epexegetical (i.e., explanatory) infinitive, expanding the previous clause.

3 tn Grk “among them.”

4 tn Grk “who.” The relative pronoun was converted to a personal pronoun and, because of the length and complexity of the Greek sentence, a new sentence was started here in the translation.

5 tn Grk “the lie.”

6 tn Or “creature, created things.”

7 tn Grk “for their females exchanged the natural function for that which is contrary to nature.” The term χρῆσις (crhsi") has the force of “sexual relations” here (L&N 23.65).
