5:1 It is reported commonly [that there is] lewdness among you,
and such lewdness as is not so much as named among the
Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife.
5:2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he
who hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
5:3 For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have
judged already as though I were present, [concerning] him that
hath so done this deed,
5:4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are assembled,
and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
5:5 To deliver such one to Satan for the destruction of the
flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord
5:6 Your boasting [is] not good. Know ye not, that a little
leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
5:7 Cleanse out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new
lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is
sacrificed for us:
5:8 Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven,
neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the
unleavened [bread] of sincerity and truth.
5:9 I have written to you in this epistle, not to associate with
persons guilty of lewdness:
5:10 Yet not altogether with lewd persons of this world, or with
the covetous, or extortioners, or with idolaters: for then ye
must needs go out of the world.
5:11 But now I have written to you not to keep company, if any
man that is called a brother is a lewd person, or covetous, or
an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner:
with such person no not to eat.
5:12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are without?
do ye not judge them that are within?
5:13 But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away
from among yourselves that wicked person.
