1 Corinthians 5 New American Standard Bible

Judgment of Immorality

5 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 his father's wife . 2  You have become arrogant and have not mourned instead , so that the one who had done this deed would be removed from your midst . 3  For I, on my part , though absent in body but present in spirit , have already judged him who has so committed this , as though I were present . 4  In the name of our Lord Jesus , when you are assembled , and I with you in spirit , with the power of our Lord Jesus , 5  I have decided to deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of his flesh , so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus . 6  Your boasting is not good . Do you not know that a 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 Passover also has been sacrificed . 8  Therefore let us celebrate the feast , not 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 not 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 idolaters , 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 brother if he is an immoral person , or covetous , or an 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 outsiders e ? Do you not judge those who are within the church? 13  But those who are outside , God judges . REMOVE THE WICKED MAN FROM AMONG YOURSELVES e .
