32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
Who — this word indicates that the statement to come refers back to the list of sins in verses 29-31.
Knowing the judgment of God — again, deliberate denial of God
Judgment — what God has declared to be right
Commit (practice) = course of conduct
Death — termination of life plus Divine penalty
Do — repeated acts
Pleasure — hearty approval of sinfulness
The progress in this verse is this: Men sin, then justify it in themselves, then condone it in others.
