New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and such sexual immorality as is not even named among the Gentiles--that a man 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 puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he who has done this deed might be taken 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 indeed, as absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged (as though I were present) him who has so done this deed. 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 Christ, when you are gathered together, along with my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, 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 deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved 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 Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? 6 Your boasting is not good. Don't you know that a little yeast works through the whole batch of dough?
7 Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us. 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 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, 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 my epistle not to keep company with sexually immoral people. 9 I have written you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people--
10 Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go 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 keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner--not even to eat with such a person. 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 have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? 12 What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside?
13 But those who are outside God judges. Therefore "put away from yourselves the evil person." 13 God will judge those outside. "Expel the wicked man from among you."
