5 On all hands there is reported to be among you—fornication, And such fornication as this—Which not among the nations [is found],—As that one should have his father’s wife:—
2 And ye have become puffed up, And have not rather mourned In order that he might be removed out of your midst who this deed hath wrought.
3 For I indeed,—Being absent in the body but present in the spirit Have already judged As present Him who thus this thing hath perpetrated:—
4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Ye being gathered together And my spirit, With the power of our Lord Jesus
5 To deliver such a one as this unto Satan, For the destruction of the flesh,—That the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord.
6 Unseemly is your boast! Know ye not that a little leaven doth leaven the whole of the lump?
7 Purge ye out the old leaven That ye may be a new lump,—Even as ye are unleavened; For our passover hath even been sacrificed—Christ:
8 So then let us be keeping the feast, Not with old leaven, Nor with leaven of baseness and wickedness,—But with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
9 I wrote unto you in my letter—Not to be mixing yourselves up with fornicators;—
10 Not at all [meaning] the fornicators of this world, or the covetous and extortioners, or idolaters,—Else had ye been obliged in that case to go out of the world.
11 But now I have written unto you not to be mixing yourselves up,—If anyone named a brother Be a fornicator or covetous or an idolater or a reviler or a drunkard or an extortioner With such a one as this not so much as to be eating together,
12 For what have I to do to be judging them who are without? Do ye not judge them who are within,
13 Whereas them who are without God judgeth? Remove ye the wicked man from among yourselves.
