1 Corinthians 5

1Fornication is actually heard among you, and such fornication that is not even named among the Gentiles, for some man to have his father's wife. 2And ye are puffed up and did not rather mourn, so that he who committed this deed might be taken away from the midst of you. 3For I truly, as being absent in the body but present in the spirit, I have already, as though present, judged the man who committed this thing this way. 4In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, 5to deliver such a man to Satan for destruction of the flesh, so that the spirit might be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. 6Your boasting is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? 7Purge out the old leaven, so that ye may be a new lump, since ye are unleavened. For also Christ our Passover was sacrificed for us. 8Therefore we should feast, not by old leaven, nor by leaven of evil and wickedness, but by non-leaven of sincerity and truth. 9I wrote to you in the letter not to associate with fornicators, 10and not at all with the fornicators of this world, or with greedy men, or with predators, or with idolaters, since then ye would need to go out of the world. 11But now I write to you not to associate if any man who is called a brother is a fornicator, or a greedy man, or an idolater, or a slanderer, or a drunkard, or a predator, not even to eat with such kind. 12For what is in me to also judge those outside? Do ye not judge those inside? 13But God judges those outside. And ye yourselves shall drive out the evil man from you.
