1 It is commonly reported that there is lewdness among you, and such lewdness as is not named even amongst the heathens, that one should have his father's wife. 2 And are ye puffed up, and have not rather grieved? that he who hath committed this fact might be expelled from among you? 3 For I indeed, absent in body, but present in spirit, have already, as if I were present, judged him who hath wrought this wickedness: in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 4 when ye are assembled together with my spirit, by the power, I say, 5 of our Lord Jesus Christ, to deliver such a one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. Your boasting is not good.
6 Do ye not know that a little leaven leaveneth the whole mass? 7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new mass, without leaven. For our paschal lamb, even Christ, was slain for us. 8 Wherefore let us keep the feast, not with the old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavening of sincerity and truth.
9 I wrote to you in an epistle, not to associate with whoremongers: 10 but I did not mean not at all with the whoremongers of this world, or the covetous, or rapacious, or idolaters: since ye must then go out of the world. 11 But now I have written to you, not to associate with him, if any one, that is called a brother, be a whoremonger, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or rapacious; with such a one no not to eat. 12 For what have I to do to judge those that are without? and do not ye judge those that are within? 13 But those who are without, God judgeth: and therefore put away the wicked one from among you.
