Romans 1:24, CSB: "Therefore God delivered them over in the desires of their hearts to sexual impurity, so that their bodies were degraded among themselves." "It is beyond question," says Tholuck, "that, according to the doctrine of the Old and New Testaments, sin is the punishment of sin." Is Romans 1:18-23 alluding to Wisdom of Solomon 13? Once people have consciously put God out of mind and allowed Satan to have dominion in their thoughts, they have at that point entered the downward road, and God himself will see to it that they go all the way to the end of the road they have deliberately chosen, or, to borrow an old proverb, lie in the beds they have made.

Ведь, поскольку сатана есть служитель гнева Божия, и как бы исполняет роль палача, то не по молчаливому согласию, а по прямому повелению судьи ополчается он на нас. For this reason the view of Köllner—that the Apostle’s idea is to be separated from its Jewish and temporal form, and that we must assume as the Christian truth in it, that the apostasy of men from God has brought them into deepest misery, as certainly as the latter is self-inflicted—is a superfluous unexegetical evasion, to which Fritzsche also has recourse.

Scripture: Romans 1:24–28 Topic: Homosexuality In our exposition of Paul’s letter to the Romans, we come now to this astonishingly relevant section in Romans 1:24–28 where Paul touches on … It is as a punishment for their apostasy that God gives men up to the power of sin. Learn, 2. Some Lexicons state that in Romans 1:24 the idea is using the body for immoral purposes and thus degrading or abusing it.

They did it by unlawful and impure connections with one another. the moral condition in which they were found when they were given up by God to impurity. He governs all things according, to the counsel of his own will and the nature of his creatures. Reiche thinks that Paul here avails himself, with more or less consciousness of its being erroneous, of the general view of the Jews regarding the origin of the peculiar wickedness of the Gentiles (Psalms 81:13; Proverbs 21:8; Sirach 4:19; Wisdom of Solomon 10:12; Wisdom of Solomon 13:1; Acts 7:42); and that this representation of moral depravity as a divine punishment is to be distinguished from the Christian doctrinal system of the Apostle. This may mean either (1) the purpose, or (2) the result, or (3) wherein the uncleanness consisted. Compare note on 1 Thessalonians 1:9. : Wherefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts unto uncleanness, that their bodies should be dishonored among themselves: One of the key expressions in this paragraph is found in this verse-the lusts (epithumia) of their hearts.

But it removes no real difficulty. Unto uncleanness; impurity, unchastity. Solomon's uncleanness led him to idolatry, and his idolatry increased his uncleanness. пояснение к ст. gave them up — This divine abandonment of men is here strikingly traced in three successive stages, at each of which the same word is used (Romans 1:24, Romans 1:26; and Romans 1:28, where the word is rendered “gave over”). Ибо за нечестием последовали его плоды, в которых можно усмотреть явные знамения Господнего гнева. God, for these ends, still preserved among them some common rectitude, and certain bonds of humanity. Ибо поскольку ничто так не важно для нас, как собственная честь, в том и выражается наивысшая слепота, что, не колеблясь, бесчестим мы себя самих. Wherefore; their impiety was the cause of what followed: this is repeated again, that it may be the better observed. God is not a mere idle spectator of the order of events; he is at once the moral governor and efficient controller of all things. As he sat, he heard children playing a game and they called out to each other these words: “Take up and read!

Здесь речь идет о половой распущенности (2Кор. This immorality is a result of the idolatry into which men fall. Comp Philippi, who thinks of the withdrawal of the Divine Spirit and its results, though in the sense of a positive divine infliction of punishment. "Heathenism left its stamp on the bodies of men and women". God did not, however, totally withdraw those restraints, by which His providence rules the world in the midst of its corruption; for if He had done so, it would have been impossible that society could have subsisted, or the succession of generations continued. Having shown that the heathen had the truth and held it back in unrighteousness, the Apostle now shows how God’s wrath was displayed: generally in giving them up to uncleanness (Romans 1:24-25), and specially to unnatural sensuality (Romans 1:26-27), as well as to other vices which are named (Romans 1:28-32). Romans 1:24. God gave them up — By withdrawing his restraining grace. 28-32) человеческой греховности. God, however, is not on this account cruel, nor are we innocent, inasmuch as Paul plainly shows, that we are not delivered up into his power, except when we deserve such a punishment. Joh. The expression, among themselves, is not without its force; for it significantly expresses how deep and indelible are the marks of infamy imprinted on our bodies. Investigations into the beginnings of religion have indeed established this picture as true. Paul takes the later illustration of verse 16 and enlarges upon it. [⇑ See verse text ⇑] Paul has said that God, in His wrathful response to human ungodliness and unrighteous, gave humanity up to the unchecked expression of our sexual lust and impure desires. Idolatry is common in our day. "Man is not ‘a virtue-machine,'" says Meyer, "when God rewards virtue with virtue; neither is he ‘a sin machine,' when God punishes sin with sin." In examining the central issue of the first few commandments, we find that the first concerns what we worship. The people in Romans 1:1-32 were so intent on being wicked God "gave them up" (paradidomi). Wherefore also he gave them, in their lusts, unto uncleanness. 24, 25), проявление (ст. (1)That the tendency of man was to these sins; (2)That the tendency of idolatry was to promote them; and. Если и в настоящее время гнев никогда не карает необдуманно и неправедно, но всегда придерживается правил справедливости, то отсюда явствует, сколь несомненно нависает над всеми заслуженная ими смерть. Wherefore God also gave them up. This ἐν ἑαυτοῖς refers to the persons ( αὐτῶν, not to be written αὑτῶν), not asserting that the ἀτιμάζασθαι takes place on themselves, which is in fact already conveyed by τὰ σώματα αὐτῶν,(494) but rather based on the nature of participation in unchastity, according to which they bring one on the other reciprocally the dishonouring of the body. Dear Friend, You have asked about Romans 1:24-32; I'm not going to transcribe it here because it's quite long. Doctrinal compromise leads to moral compromise. See Bengelius and Bos. (impurity of the becoming dishonoured, i.e. - They had filled up the measure of their iniquities, and God, by permitting them to plunge into all manner of irregularities, thus, by one species of sin, inflicted punishment on another. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Wherefore God also (in righteous retribution), gave them up, [ paredooken (Greek #3860)]. We have the same thought again, Romans 1:27 and the same phrase; where we render it in themselves. This word describes the desire that "urges man to activity." Romans 1:24-32. ἐν ἑαυτοῖς is either equivalent to ἐν ἀλλήλοις, reciprocally, they dishonored one another, as to their bodies; or in themselves, dishonoring their bodies in themselves; "significantius exprimit," says Calvin, "quàm profundas et ineluibiles ignominiae notas corporibus suis inusserint.". Our bodies are Christ's members, the Holy Ghost's temples; let us therefore glorify God with our bodies on earth, which shall be subjects capable of glory with himself in heaven. God also on this account delivered them up to the lusts of their own hearts to work uncleanness, that they might dishonor their bodies among themselves. Among them. their sin, but when they rejected him, he allowed them to bring trouble upon themselves. καὶ, also, indicates the giving up as a thing corresponding to the guilt. To uncleanness through, [ en (G1722), rather, 'in'] the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves, [ en (Greek #1722) heautois (Greek #1438)] - or, according to the preferable reading [ en (Greek #1722) autois (Greek #846)], 'with each other;' But the sense is the same. But they did, of course, still have the testimony of nature, and of conscience, and of their own inner heart. Romans 1:24 Wherefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts unto uncleanness, that their bodies should be dishonored among themselves: "God gave them up" -"gave them over" (NASV); "letting them follow" (Beck); "let them go ahead into" (Tay), "These people had already wilfully deserted God who merely left them to their own self-determination and self-destruction, part of the price of man"s moral freedom..the words sound to us like clods on the coffin as God leaves men to work their own wicked will. Another example of the same thing is the case of Balaam who, when he would have turned back from a wrong course, was commanded of God, "Go with the men" (Numbers 22:22). Итак, апостол с помощью внешних проявлений доказывает отступничество и падение людей, ведь Бог мстит тем, кто отошел от Его благости, и низвергает их в многообразную погибель и разрушение. Man ought not to debase himself, 1 Corinthians 6:13, etc.— ἐν ἑαυτοῖς,(15) among their ownselves), by fornication, effeminacy, and other vices. Observe, 2. The abandonment is a negative act of God, or rather a negation of acting, of which God is absolutely master, since, being under no obligation to confer grace on any man, He is free to withhold it as He sees good; so that in this withholding there is no injustice: But besides this, it is a negation of acting which men have deserved by their previous sins, and consequently it proceeds from His justice, and is in this view to be considered as a punishment. ‘God gave them up --- to uncleanness.’ There can be no more chilling words than these, that God ‘gave them up’ (see also Romans 1:28). 4:7), которая зарождается в сердце, а затем распространяется по телу. Lord, keep back thy servants from sinning against the light of nature, against the light of scripture, lest we be judicially darkened, and given up to a sottish and injudicious mind, to hardness of heart, and the vilest of affections. Romans 1:24. διό, wherefore) One punishment of sin arises from its physical consequences, Romans 1:27, note, [that recompense of their error, which] was meet; another, moreover, from retributive justice, as in this passage.— ἐν ταῖς ἐπιθυμίαις, in the lusts) ἐν, not ἐις. 24.God also gave them up—The Divine Spirit, which loves to draw to itself the willing and susceptible human spirit, being thus abandoned, substituted, rejected, and repelled with insult, withdraws Himself and leaves the apostate to himself. To dishonour - To disgrace; Romans 1:26-27. The cognate word akathartes in Revelation 17:4 only. ἁι ἐπιθυμίαι, the lusts, were already present there. Another infamous sin charged upon the Heathens; namely, the sin of uncleanness; yea, base, unnatural uncleanness, and pollutions of the most odious kinds. Socrates is said to have had his catamite {a} inter Socraticos, & c. The vices of unchastity, which moreover are still here referred to quite generally (it is otherwise in Romans 1:26 f.), and not specially as unnatural, according to their disgraceful nature, in whatever forms they may have been practised, are specifically heathen (in fact, even partially belonging to the heathen cultus), as a consequence of apostasy from the true God (comp 1 Thessalonians 4:5). To uncleanness - To impurity, or moral defilement; particularly to those impurities which he proceeds to specify, Romans 1:26, etc. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness,.... Not by putting any into them, but by leaving them to the pollution of their nature; by withdrawing his providential restraints from them, and by giving them up to judicial hardness: through the lusts of their own hearts. He gives himself up (Ephesians 4:19), while he is given up by God to that tragic nexus of moral destiny; and he becomes no machine of sin, but possesses at every moment the capacity of μετάνοια, which the very reaction resulting from the feeling of the most terrible misery of sin—punished through sin—is designed to produce. If then God has so arranged that man by apostasy from Him should fall into moral impurity, and that thus sin shall be punished by sin (and this connection of sin with sin is in accordance both with experience and Scripture, Isaiah 6:10; Job 8:4; Psalms 69:28; Psalms 81:13; Mark 4:12), this arrangement can only be carried out in reality through the effective action of its originator; and God Himself must give up the apostates unto impurity, inasmuch as it is by His doing that that moral connection is in point of fact accomplished. they, who dishonour God, inflict punishment on their ownselves. This is not to say, however, that God causes people to do wrong; far from it. Thus was His justice manifested in giving up those who had dishonored Him to dishonor themselves, in a manner the most degrading and revolting. "Uncleanness" -"impurity, immorality". To uncleanness—The spiritual in the man, unrefreshed and uninvigorated by the Divine Spirit, becomes faint and inert, and the animal reigns alone in power. 80:12, 13; Ос. This term means God "abandoned them to impurity" (Gingrich and Danker, p615). Observe here, 1. De Wette truly says, "Diese Ansicht ist nicht bloss jüdisch, sondern allgemein wahr vom absoluten Standpunkte der Religion aus." The import of εἰς ἀκαθαρσίαν, in order to uncleanness, is no doubt, to work uncleanness; the Apostle frequently uses this kind of expression. As they again prevail even among Christians, wherever this apostasy spreads through unbelief, they must verify even in Christendom their heathen nature, and, along with the likewise essentially heathen πλεονεξία, pre-eminently exclude from the salvation of the Messiah (Ephesians 5:5 f.; Colossians 3:5; 1 Corinthians 6:9 f.). ", "in the lusts of their hearts"-sin is a heart problem. they, who dishonour God, inflict punishment on their ownselves, gave them up in the lusts of their hearts unto uncleanness, to dishonour their own bodies between, Ellicott's Commentary for English Readers. The animal grows in lust and exerts its utmost power in sensuality, ascertaining by shameful experiment the full extent to which debasement in man can go. Ибо несомненно, что не только, дозволяя и соизволяя, разрешает Он впасть в него человеку, но и по праведному суду Своему устраивает все так, чтобы как по собственной похоти, так и по наущению дьявола, впадали люди в это исступление (Вводились).
