Here is as literal a rendering of the sentence as I am capable of translating it:

For God's wrath is being revealed from heaven on all irreverance and unrighteousness of people, of the [ones] holding down the truth in unrighteousness.

In Greek the use of the participle as a noun is very common.

"of the ... holding down the truth in unrighteousness"
To render this into understandable English, one must supply "ones" in the text. This is equivalent to saying "of those who hold down the truth in unrighteousness". There is no significant difference.
