1 It is actually heard that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not even named among the Gentiles-that a man has his father's wife!
2 And you have become arrogant, and have not rather grieved, so that he who did this deed would be removed from your midst.
3 For I indeed, as being absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged (as though I were present) him who has done this deed in this way,
4 in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, along with my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
5 hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, in order that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
6 Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole batch?
7 Purge out the old leaven, in order that you may be a new batch of dough, since you are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us.
8 So then let us observe 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 epistle not to associate with fornicators.
10 Yet I certainly did not mean with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or swindlers, or idolaters, since then you would need to leave this world!
11 But now I have written to you not to associate with anyone named a brother, who is a fornicator, or covetous person, or an idolater, or abusive person, or a drunkard, or a swindler-not even to eat with such a person.
12 For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside?
13 But those who are outside God will judge. Therefore "put away the evil person from yourselves."
