1 Corinthians 5

It is actually reported that there is immorality among you, and such immorality as does not even occur among the Gentiles, that one of you has his father's wife. And you are puffed up, and have not mourned instead. Let him who has done this deed be removed from among you. For I, though absent in body, am present in spirit, and have already judged him who has done this deed, just as though I were present. In the name of our Lord Jesus, when you are gathered together, with my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus, Deliver this man to Satan for the destruction of his flesh, that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord Jesus. Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Clean out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you really are unleavened. For Christ our passover has been sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. I wrote to you in a letter not to keep company with the sexually immoral: 10 Not at all meaning the immoral of this world, or the covetous, or swindlers, or idolaters; for then you would have to go out of the world. 11 But now I write to you not to keep company with any man who is called a brother if he is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a slanderer, or a drunkard, or an swindler; with such a one do not even eat. 12 For what have I to do with judging those who are outside? are you not to judge those who are within? 13 Those who are outside God judges. Put out from among yourselves the wicked person.
