1 Corinthians, Chapter 5

5:1 It is actually reported that there is fornication among you+, and such fornication as is not even among the Gentiles, that one [of you+] has his father's wife.
5:2 And you+ are puffed up, and did not rather mourn, that he who had participated in this deed might be taken away from among you+.
5:3 For I truly, being absent in body but present in spirit, have already as though I were present judged him who has so worked this thing,
5:4 in the name of our Lord Jesus, you+ being gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus,
5:5 to deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord.
5:6 Your+ glorying is not good. Don't you+ know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?
5:7 Purge out the old leaven, that you+ may be a new lump, even as you+ are unleavened. For our Passover also has been sacrificed, [even] Christ:
5:8 therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
5:9 I wrote to you+ in my letter not to associate with fornicators;
5:10 not at all [meaning] with the fornicators of this world, or with the greedy and extortioners, or with idolaters; for then you+ must needs go out of the world:
5:11 but as it is, I wrote to you+ not to associate with any man who is named a brother if he is a fornicator, or greedy, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; do not even eat with such a one.
5:12 For what have I to do with judging those who are outside? Do not you+ judge those who are inside?
5:13 But those who are outside God will judge. Put away the wicked man from among yourselves.
