1Actually fornication is reported among YOU, and such fornication as is not even among the nations, that a wife a certain [man] has of [his] father.2And are YOU puffed up, and did YOU not rather mourn, in order that the man that committed this deed should be taken away from YOUR midst?3I for one, although absent in body but present in spirit, have certainly judged already, as if I were present, the man who has worked in such a way as this,4that in the name of our Lord Jesus, when YOU are gathered together, also my spirit with the power of our Lord Jesus,5YOU hand such a man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, in order that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord.
6YOUR [cause for] boasting is not fine. Do YOU not know that a little leaven ferments the whole lump?7Clear away the old leaven, that YOU may be a new lump, according as YOU are free from ferment. For, indeed, Christ our passover has been sacrificed.8Consequently let us keep the festival, not with old leaven, neither with leaven of badness and wickedness, but with unfermented cakes of sincerity and truth.
9In my letter I wrote YOU to quit mixing in company with fornicators,10not [meaning] entirely with the fornicators of this world or the greedy persons and extortioners or idolaters. Otherwise, YOU would actually have to get out of the world.11But now I am writing YOU to quit mixing in company with anyone called a brother that is a fornicator or a greedy person or an idolater or a reviler or a drunkard or an extortioner, not even eating with such a man.12For what do I have to do with judging those outside? Do YOU not judge those inside,13while God judges those outside? “Remove the wicked [man] from among yourselves.”
