Rom.1:26 26διὰ τοῦτο παρέδωκεν αὐτοὺς θεὸς εἰς πάθη ἀτιμίας· αἵ τε γὰρ θήλειαι αὐτῶν μετήλλαξαν τὴν φυσικὴν χρῆσιν εἰς τὴν παρὰ φύσιν. 26 That is why {NEQ} God abandoned them to their shameful desires . {NEQ} Even the women {RPT} turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other .
Rom.2:14 14ὅταν γὰρ ἔθνη, τὰ μὴ νόμον ἔχοντα, φύσει τὰ τοῦ νόμου ποιῶσιν, οὗτοι νόμον μὴ ἔχοντες ἑαυτοῖς εἰσὶν νόμος. 14 Even Gentiles , who do not have God’s written law , show that {NEQ} they know his law when they instinctively obey it , even without having heard it .
Rom.2:27 27καί, κρινεῖ ἐκ φύσεως ἀκροβυστία τὸν νόμον τελοῦσα σὲ τὸν διὰ γράμματος καὶ περιτομῆς παραβάτην νόμου. 27 In fact , {NEQ} uncircumcised Gentiles who keep God’s law will condemn you Jews who are circumcised and possess God’s law but don’t obey it .
Rom.11:21 21εἰ γὰρ θεὸς τῶν κατὰ φύσιν κλάδων οὐκ ἐφείσατο, οὐδὲ σοῦ φείσεται. 21 For if {NEQ} God did not spare the original branches , he won’t  *  spare you either .
Rom.11:24 24εἰ γὰρ σύ, ἐκ τῆς κατὰ φύσιν, ἐξεκόπης ἀγριελαίου. καὶ παρὰ φύσιν ἐνεκεντρίσθης εἰς καλλιέλαιον, πόσῳ μᾶλλον οὗτοι οἱ κατὰ φύσιν ἐνκεντρισθήσονται τῇ ἰδίᾳ ἐλαίᾳ. 24 {NEQ} {NEQ} You , by {NEQ} nature , were a branch cut from {RPT} a wild olive tree . So if God was willing to do something contrary to nature by grafting you into his cultivated tree , he will be far more eager to graft the original branches back into the tree where they belong .
1Cor.11:14 14οὐδὲ φύσις αὐτὴ διδάσκει ὑμᾶς ὅτι ἀνὴρ μὲν ἐὰν κομᾷ ἀτιμία αὐτῷ ἐστίν; 14 Isn’t it obvious that {NEQ} {NEQ} it’s disgraceful for a man to have long hair {RPT} ?
