Romans 1:29 peplhrwmenous pash adikia ponhria pleonexia kakia

I simply don't know how to understand this verse:

Roma 1:29 (GNT) peplhrwmenous pash adikia ponhria pleonexia kakia ...

Is PEPLHRWMENOUS an accusative absolute? (Does NT Greek use accusative
absolutes?) What are all those dative female adjectives doing after the
accusative participle?

Roma 1:29 (GNT) ... mestous fqonou fonou eridos dolou kakohqeias

Again, I just don't get it. I can't read this! How is MESTOUS being used
with the accusative here?

Roma 1:30 (GNT) katalalous qeostugeis ubristas uperhfanous alazonas,
efeuretas kakwn, goneusin apeiqeis,

Why are these all accusative?
