1 IT is commonly reported that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not among the gentiles, that a man should have his father's wife. 2 And you are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he who has done this deed should be removed from among you. 3 For I indeed as absent in body, but present in spirit, have already judged as present him that has so done this, 4 in the name of our Lord Jesus you being assembled together and my spirit with the power of our Lord Jesus 5 to deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord.
6 Your rejoicing is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole mass? 7 Remove the old leaven, that you may be a new mass, as you are unleavened; for Christ our passover was also sacrificed for us. 8 Let us therefore keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with a leaven of vice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
9 I wrote to you in the epistle not to associate with fornicators; 10 not altogether the fornicators of this world, or the covetous and rapacious, or idolaters, since then you would have to go out of the world. 11 But now I have written to you not to associate, if any one called a brother is a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or rapacious, even to eat with such a one. 12 For what business have I to judge those without? Do you not judge those within? 13 but those without, God judges. Remove therefore the evil man from among you.
