1 Corinthians 5

ABU(i) 1 IT is commonly reported that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not even among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife. 2 And ye are puffed up, and did not rather mourn, that he who did this deed might be taken away from among you. 3 For I verily, as absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged, as though I were present, concerning him who has so done this; 4 in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, ye being gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, 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 Jesus. 6 Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? 7 Cleanse out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, according as ye are unleavened. For our passover, Christ, was sacrificed for us; 8 therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 9 I wrote to you, in my letter, not to keep company with fornicators; 10 yet not, altogether, with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters; for then ye must needs go out of the world. 11 But as it is, I wrote to you not to keep company, if any one called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner, with such a one not even to eat. 12 For what have I to do with judging those also who are without? Do not ye judge those who are within? 13 But those who are without God judges. Therefore put away that wicked man from among yourselves.
