1 It is actually reported that there is immorality among you, and such immorality as is not even among the heathen??hat a man has taken his father's wife! 2 Yet you are puffed up instead of mourning and removing from among you the man who has done this thing. 3 For I, although absent in body, yet present in spirit, have already passed sentence, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, on him who has done this thing. 4 When you are gathered together, and my spirit is with you together with the power of our Lord Jesus, 5 I have handed over such a man to Satan for the destruction of his flesh, that his spirit may be saved, in the day of the Lord Jesus.
6 Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that even a little leaven leavens all the lump? 7 Then get rid of the old leaven, so that you may be like a new lump, as you are now unleavened. For our Paschal Lamb has already been sacrificed, Christ himself. 8 So let us keep the unending feast, not with any old leaven, neither with leaven of malice and vice, but with unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
9 I told you in my letter not to associate with the immoral. 10 Not that in this world you were actually to have no contact with the immoral, the avaricious, the thievish, or with idolaters; for then you would have to leave the world, altogether. 11 But what I wrote was that you were not to associate with any so-called brother who is immoral, or avaricious, or idolatrous, or abusive, or a drunkard, or an extortioner. No, with such persons do not even sit at table. 12 What have I to do with the judging of outsiders? Must not you judge those who are within the church, while God judges outsiders? 13 Expel that wicked man from among you.
