5 Actually sexual immorality+ is reported among you, and such immorality as is not even found among the nations—of a man living with* his father’s wife.+ 2 And are you proud of it? Should you not rather mourn,+ so that the man who committed this deed should be taken away from your midst?+ 3 Although absent in body, I am present in spirit, and I have already judged the man who has done this, as if I were actually with you. 4 When you are gathered together in the name of our Lord Jesus, and knowing that I am with you in spirit along with the power of our Lord Jesus, 5 you must hand such a man over to Satan+ for the destruction of the flesh, so that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord.+
6 Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven ferments the whole batch of dough?+ 7 Clear away the old leaven so that you may be a new batch, inasmuch as you are free from ferment. For, indeed, Christ our Passover lamb+ has been sacrificed.+ 8 So, then, let us keep the festival,+ not with old leaven, nor with leaven of badness and wickedness, but with unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
9 In my letter I wrote you to stop keeping company with sexually immoral people, 10 not meaning entirely with the sexually immoral people of this world+ or the greedy people or extortioners or idolaters. Otherwise, you would actually have to get out of the world.+ 11 But now I am writing you to stop keeping company+ with anyone called a brother who is sexually immoral or a greedy person+ or an idolater or a reviler or a drunkard+ or an extortioner,+ not even eating with such a man. 12 For what do I have to do with judging those outside? Do you not judge those inside,+ 13 while God judges those outside?+ “Remove the wicked person from among yourselves.”+
