1 Fornication is truly heard of among you, and such fornication which is not among the heathens, that one should have the wife of his father. 2 And have you been inflated, and have not rather mourned, that the one having done this work may be taken from your midst? 3 For indeed I, being absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged the one having thus done this, as being present, 4 in the name of the Lord Jesus, you and my spirit being assembled, with the power of the Lord Jesus, 5 to turn over such a one to Satan for the destruction of carnality, in order that the 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? 7 Cleanse away the old leaven, in order that you may be a new lump, as you are free from leaven; for Christ has truly become our Passover. 8 So let us feast, not on the old leaven, nor on the leaven of sin and iniquity, but on the unleavened bread of purity and truth.
9 I have written unto you in a letter to have no fellowship with fornicators; 10 not at all with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous and the extortioners, or with the idolators; since you ought therefore to come out of the world. 11 For now I have written unto you not to keep company with him, if any one denominated a brother may be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a scold, or drunken, or an extortioner; with such a one not to eat. 12 For why is it for me to judge the outsiders? Do you not judge those within? But God will judge those without. 13 Take away the wicked person from you, yourselves.
