1 Corinthians 5

Immorality Rebuked

1 It is actually reported that there is immorality among you, and immorality of such a kind as does not exist even among the Gentiles, that someone has 1his father's wife.
2 You 2have become arrogant and have not 3mourned instead, so that the one who had done this deed would be 4removed from your midst.
3 For I, on my part, though 5absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged him who has so committed this, as though I were present.
4 6In the name of our Lord Jesus, when you are assembled, and I with you in spirit, 7with the power of our Lord Jesus,
5 I have decided to 8deliver such a one to 9Satan for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in 10the day of the Lord Jesus.
6 11Your boasting is not good. 12Do you not know that 13a little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough?
7 Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our 14Passover also has been sacrificed.
8 Therefore let us celebrate the feast, 15not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
9 I wrote you in my letter 16not to associate with immoral people;
10 I did not at all mean with the immoral people of this world, or with the covetous and swindlers, or with 17idolaters, for then you would have to go out of the world.
11 But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called 18brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or 19an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler -not even to eat with such a one.
12 For what have I to do with judging 20outsiders *? 21Do you not judge those who are within the church?
