Punishment (epitimia). Late word for old Greek to epitimion (so papyri), from epitimaw, to show honour to, to award, to adjudge penalty. Only here in N.T. By the many (upo twn pleionwn). By the more, the majority. If Paul refers to the case in 1 Corinthians 5:1 ff., they had taken his advice and expelled the offender.
