New International Version
Yet these people slander whatever they do not understand, and the very things they do understand by instinct--as irrational animals do--will destroy them.
King James Bible
But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.
Darby Bible Translation
But these, whatever things they know not, they speak railingly against; but what even, as the irrational animals, they understand by mere nature, in these things they corrupt themselves.
World English Bible

Young's Literal Translation
and these, as many things indeed as they have not known, they speak evil of; and as many things as naturally (as the irrational beasts) they understand, in these they are corrupted;

The Twofold Bearing of this Fact.
(Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law.
Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is set on earthly things.
2 Peter 2:12
But these people blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like unreasoning animals, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like animals they too will perish.
