1 IT is generally reported that there is unchastity among you, and such unchastity as is not even among the Gentiles, so that a man has his father's wife!
2 And you are puffed up with pride and have not rather grieved and taken steps to expel from among you the doer of this deed!
3 For I, absent in body, but present in spirit, have already as if I were present judged the man who has acted thus.
4 When you assembled in the name of the Lord Jesus and my spirit was also present with the power of our Lord Jesus,
5 I decided to deliver over such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord.
6 Your boasting is unbecoming. Do you not know that a little yeast sets the whole mass fermenting?
7 Cleanse out the old yeast that you may be new dough, free from yeast, as indeed you are. For Christ, our Passover, has been sacrificed.
8 So let us keep the festival, not with the old yeast nor with the yeast of evil and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
9 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with unchaste people,
10 certainly not meaning the unchaste of this world, or the covetous or extortionate or idolaters, since in that case you would have to leave the world.
11 But now I write to you not to associate with any one who is called a brother, if he is unchaste or covetous or idolatrous or abusive or drunken or extortionate \'97 not even to eat with such a one.
12 For what business of mine is it to judge outsiders? Is it not for you to judge those inside?
13 But outsiders God will judge. Expel the wicked man from among yourselves.
