Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 It is said, in fact, that there is among you a sin of the flesh, such as is not seen even among the Gentiles, that one of you has his father's wife. 1 It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that does not occur even among pagans: A man has his father's wife.
2 And in place of feeling sorrow, you are pleased with yourselves, so that he who has done this thing has not been sent away from among you. 2 And you are proud! Shouldn't you rather have been filled with grief and have put out of your fellowship the man who did this?
3 For I myself, being present in spirit though not in body, have come to a decision about him who has done this thing; 3 Even though I am not physically present, I am with you in spirit. And I have already passed judgment on the one who did this, just as if I were present.
4 In the name of our Lord Jesus, when you have come together with my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus, 4 When you are assembled in the name of our Lord Jesus and I am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present,
5 That this man is to be handed over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may have forgiveness in the day of the Lord Jesus. 5 hand this man over to Satan, so that the sinful nature may be destroyed and his spirit saved on the day of the Lord.
6 This pride of yours is not good. Do you not see that a little leaven makes a change in all the mass? 6 Your boasting is not good. Don't you know that a little yeast works through the whole batch of dough?
7 Take away, then, the old leaven, so that you may be a new mass, even as you are without leaven. For Christ has been put to death as our Passover. 7 Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast--as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.
8 Let us then keep the feast, not with old leaven, and not with the leaven of evil thoughts and acts, but with the unleavened bread of true thoughts and right feelings. 8 Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with bread without yeast, the bread of sincerity and truth.
9 In my letter I said to you that you were not to keep company with those who go after the desires of the flesh; 9 I have written you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people--
10 But I had not in mind the sinners who are outside the church, or those who have a desire for and take the property of others, or those who give worship to images; for it is not possible to keep away from such people without going out of the world completely: 10 not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world.
11 But the sense of my letter was that if a brother had the name of being one who went after the desires of the flesh, or had the desire for other people's property, or was in the way of using violent language, or being the worse for drink, or took by force what was not his, you might not keep company with such a one, or take food with him. 11 But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat.
12 For it is no business of mine to be judging those who are outside; but it is yours to be judging those who are among you; 12 What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside?
13 As for those who are outside, God is their judge. So put away the evil man from among you. 13 God will judge those outside. "Expel the wicked man from among you."
