1 Corinthians 5

Rotherham(i) 1 On all hands, there is reported to be among you—fornication, and such fornication as this—which, not among the nations, [is found],—as that one should have, his father’s wife:— 2 And, ye, have become puffed up, and have not rather mourned, in order that he might be removed out of your midst, who, this deed, hath wrought. 3 For, I, indeed,—being absent in the body, but present in the spirit, have already judged, as present, him who, thus, this thing hath perpetrated:— 4 In the name of our Lord Jesus, ye being gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus, 5 To deliver such a one as this, unto Satan, for the destruction of the flesh,—that, the spirit, may be saved in the day of the Lord. 6 Unseemly, is your boast! Know ye not that, a little leaven, doth leaven, the whole of the lump? 7 Purge ye out the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump,—even as ye are unleavened; for, our passover, hath even been sacrificed—Christ: 8 So then, let us be keeping the feast, not with old leaven, nor with leaven of baseness and wickedness,—but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 9 I wrote a unto you in my letter—not to be mixing yourselves up with fornicators;— 10 Not at all, [meaning] the fornicators of this world, or the covetous and extortioners, or idolaters,—else had ye been obliged, in that case, to go out of the world! 11 But, now, I have written unto you not to be mixing yourselves up,—if anyone named a brother, be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner, with such a one as this, not so much, as to be eating together, 12 For what have I to do to be judging them who are without? Do, ye, not judge, them who are within, 13 Whereas, them who are without, God, judgeth? Remove ye the wicked man from among, yourselves.
