New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 It is actually being said that there is sexual sin among you. And it is a kind that does not happen even among people who do not know God. A man there 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 you are proud! You should have been filled with sadness so that the man who did this should be put out of your group. 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 I am not there with you in person, but I am with you in spirit. And I have already judged the man who did that sin as if I were really there. 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, and I meet with you 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 then hand this man over to Satan. So his sinful self will be destroyed, and his spirit will 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 is not good. You know the saying, "Just a little yeast makes the 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 Take out all the old yeast so that you will be a new batch of dough without yeast, which you really are. For 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 us celebrate this feast, but not with the bread that has the old yeast -- the yeast of sin and wickedness. Let us celebrate this feast with the bread that has no yeast -- the bread of goodness 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 you in my earlier letter not to associate with those who sin sexually. 9 I have written you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people--
10 But I did not mean you should not associate with those of this world who sin sexually, or with the greedy, or robbers, or those who worship idols. To get away from them you would have to leave this 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 I am writing to tell you that you must not associate with those who call themselves believers in Christ but who sin sexually, or are greedy, or worship idols, or abuse others with words, or get drunk, or cheat people. Do not even eat with people like that. 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 12 What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside?
13 It is not my business to judge those who are not part of the church. God will judge them. But you must judge the people who are part of the church. The Scripture says, "You must get rid of the evil person among you." 13 God will judge those outside. "Expel the wicked man from among you."
