1 Corinthians 5
1 Fornication is heard literally to be among you* (and such fornication which is not even named among the Gentiles), that someone has his father's wife. 2 And you* have been arrogant, and did not rather mourn in order that he who did this work might be taken away out of your* midst. 3 For* indeed, as being absent in the body, but being present* in the spirit, I have already judged him thus, who worked out this thing, (as though I am present*), 4 in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. When you* and my spirit were gathered together, together with the power of our Lord Jesus, 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.
6 Your* boasting is not good. Do you* not know that a little leaven leavens the whole batch? 7 Cleanse* out the old leaven, in order that you* may be a new batch, just-as you* are unleavened. For* Christ our Passover was also sacrificed on our behalf. 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. 9 I wrote to you* in my letter not to socialize together with fornicators; 10 and certainly not meaning with the fornicators of this world or with the greedy ones or ravening ones or idolaters; otherwise, you* are consequently* obligated to go forth out of the world. 11 But now, I wrote to you* not to socialize together with anyone if he is named a brother, who is either a fornicator or greedy one, or an idolater or a reviler, or a drunkard or a ravening one, not to even eat together with such a person. 12 For* what is it to me to judge those who are outside? Are you* not judging those who are inside? 13 Now God will be judging those who are outside, and you will be taking away the evil man from among yourselves.
