Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 It is reported everywhere [that there] is sexual immorality among you, and sexual immorality of such a kind which [does] not [even exist] among the Gentiles, so that someone has the wife of [his] father. 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 are inflated with pride, and should you not rather have mourned, so that the one who has done this deed would be removed from your midst? 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 [although I] am absent in body but present in spirit, I have already passed judgment on the one who has done this in this way, 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 In the name of our Lord Jesus, [when] you are assembled, and my spirit, together 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 [I have decided] to hand over such a person to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, in order that his spirit may be saved in 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 boasting [is] not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole batch of dough? 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 leaven in order that you may be a new batch of dough, just as you are unleavened. For Christ our Passover 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 then, let us celebrate the feast, not with the old leaven or with the leaven of wickedness and sinfulness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 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 the letter not to associate with sexually immoral people. 9 I have written you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people--
10 By no means [did I mean] the sexually immoral people of this world or the greedy people and swindlers or idolaters, since then you would have to depart out of the world. 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 have written to you not to associate with any so-called brother, if he is a sexually immoral person or a greedy person or an idolater or an abusive person or a drunkard or a swindler--with such a person not even to eat. 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 what [is it] to me to judge those outside? Should you not judge those inside? 12 What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside?
13 But those outside God will judge. Remove the evil person {from among yourselves}. 13 God will judge those outside. "Expel the wicked man from among you."
