Modern Literal Version
[1 Corinthians 5]

     5:1 Fornication is heard literally to be among youĎ (and such fornication which is not even named among the Gentiles), that someone has his father's wife. 5:2 And youĎ have been arrogant, and did not rather mourn in order that he who did this work might be taken away out of yourĎmidst. 5:3 For* indeed, as being absent in the body, but being present* in the spirit, I have already judged him thus, who has worked this thing, (as though I am present*), 5:4 in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. When* youĎ and my spirit are gathered together, together with the power of our Lord Jesus, 5:5 to give such a one to the Adversary *for the utter-destruction of the flesh, in order that the spirit might be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

     5:6 YourĎ boasting is not good. Do youĎ not know that a little leaven leavens the whole batch?5:7 CleanseĎ out the old leaven, in order that youĎ may be a new batch, just-as youĎ are unleavened. For* Christ our Passover has also been sacrificed on our behalf. 5:8 So-then we should celebrate a festival, not in old leaven, nor in the leaven of malice and wickedness, but in the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

     5:9 I have written to youĎ in my letter not to socialize together with fornicators; 5:10 and certainly not meaning with the fornicators of this world or with the greedy or swindlers or idolaters; otherwise, youĎ are consequently* obligated to go forth out of the world. 5:11 But now, I have written to youĎ not to socialize together with anyone if he is named a brother, who is either a fornicator or greedy, or an idolater or a reviler, or a drunkard or a swindler, not to even eat together with such a person.5:12 For* what is it to me to judge those who are outside? Are youĎnot judging those who are inside? 5:13 Now God will be judging those who are outside, and you will be taking away the evil man from among yourselves.
