I CORINTHIANS · Chapter 5
5:1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and
such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one
should have his father's wife.
5:2 And all of you are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that has done this deed might be taken away from among you.
5:3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that has so done this deed,
5:4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when all of you are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
5:5 To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
5:6 Your glorying is not good. Know all of you not that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?
5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that all of you may be a new lump, as all of you are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
5:9 I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
5:10 Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortionists, or with idolaters; for then must all of you essentially go out of the world.
5:11 But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortionist; with such an one no not to eat.
5:12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not all of you judge them that are within?
5:13 But them that are without God judges. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
