Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Everyone has heard that there is sexual immorality among you. This is a type of immorality that isn't even heard of among the Gentiles—a man is having sex with 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 you're proud of yourselves instead of being so upset that the one who did this thing is expelled from your community. 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 Though I'm absent physically, I'm present in the spirit and I've already judged the man who did this as if I were present. 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 When you meet together in the name of our Lord Jesus, I'll be present in 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 At that time we need to hand this man over to Satan to destroy his human weakness so that his spirit might be saved on the day of the Lord. 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 Your bragging isn't good! Don't you know that a tiny grain of yeast makes a whole batch of dough rise? 6 Your boasting is not good. Don't you know that a little yeast works through the whole batch of dough?
7 Clean out the old yeast so you can be a new batch of dough, given that you're supposed to be unleavened bread. Christ our Passover lamb has been sacrificed, 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 so let's celebrate the feast with the unleavened bread of honesty and truth, not with old yeast or with the yeast of evil and wickedness. 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 I wrote to you in my earlier letter not to associate with sexually immoral people. 9 I have written you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people--
10 But I wasn't talking about the sexually immoral people in the outside world by any means—or the greedy, or the swindlers, or people who worship false gods—otherwise, you would have to leave the world entirely! 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 now I'm writing to you not to associate with anyone who calls themselves "brother" or "sister" who is sexually immoral, greedy, someone who worships false gods, an abusive person, a drunk, or a swindler. Don't even eat with anyone like this. 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 What do I care about judging outsiders? Isn't it your job to judge insiders? 12 What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside?
13 God will judge outsiders. Expel the evil one from among you! 13 God will judge those outside. "Expel the wicked man from among you."
