1 Corinthians 5 Goodspeed - Immorality is actually notorious among you, and immorality



1 Immorality is actually notorious among you, and immorality of a kind unknown even among the heathen??hat a man has taken his father's wife. 2 And can you put on airs, instead of being overwhelmed with grief at having to expel from your number the man who has done this? 3 For my part, though I have been absent from you in person, I have been present with you in spirit, and as thus present I have already passed judgment upon the man who has done this, 4 and meeting with you, in spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus, by the authority of our Lord Jesus 5 I have handed the man over to Satan, for his physical destruction, in order that his spirit may be saved on the Day of the Lord.
6 Certainly this is nothing for you to boast of. Do you not know that a little yeast will affect all the dough? 7 You must clean out the old yeast and become fresh dough, free from the old as you really are. For our Passover lamb is already sacrificed; it is Christ himself. 8 So let us keep the festival, not with old yeast nor with the yeast of vice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of purity and truth.
9 I wrote you in my letter not to associate with immoral people??10 not that you are to have nothing whatever to do with the immoral people of the world, any more than with its greedy and grasping people or idolaters, for then you would have to leave the world altogether. 11 What I meant was that you are not to associate with anyone who is supposed to be a Christian brother, and yet is immoral or greedy or idolatrous or abusive or drunken or grasping??ith such a person you must not even eat. 12 For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not your part to judge those who are inside the church, 13 and God's, to judge those who are outside? You must drive the wrongdoer out from among you.
