The Epistle of Paul to the First Corinthians
5:1 It is actually reported that there is fornication among you, and such
fornication as is not even among the Gentiles, that one of you hath his father's
wife. 5:2And ye are puffed up, and did not rather mourn, that he that had done this
deed might be taken away from among you. 5:3For I verily, being absent in body
but present in spirit, have already as though I were present judged him that hath
so wrought this thing, 5:4in the name of our Lord Jesus, ye being gathered together,
and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus, 5:5to deliver such a one unto Satan
for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord
Jesus. 5:6Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the
whole lump? 5:7Purge out the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, even as ye
are unleavened. For our passover also hath been sacrificed, even Christ:
5:8wherefore 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. 5:9I
wrote unto you in my epistle to have no company with fornicators; 5:10not at all
meaning with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous and extortioners,
or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world: 5:11but as it is, I wrote
unto you not to keep company, if any man that is named a brother be a fornicator,
or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such
a one no, not to eat. 5:12For what have I to do with judging them that are without?
Do not ye judge them that are within? 5:13But them that are without God judgeth.
Put away the wicked man from among yourselves.
