1 Corinthians chapter 5

Bible Version
Book
Chapter
Commentary
1
It is widely reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and the kind of sexual immorality that is not even condoned among the Gentiles-- a man is living with his father's wife.
2
And you are inflated with pride, instead of filled with grief so that he who has committed this act might be removed from among you.
3
For though absent in body but present in spirit, I have already decided about him who has done this thing as though I were present.
4
In the name of our Lord Jesus, when you are assembled, along with my spirit and with the power of our Lord Jesus,
5
turn that one over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the Day of the Lord.
6
Your boasting is not good. Don't you know that a little yeast permeates the whole batch of dough?
7
Clean out the old yeast so that you may be a new batch, since you are unleavened. For Christ our Passover has been sacrificed.
8
Therefore, let us observe the feast, not with old yeast, or with the yeast of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
9
I wrote to you in a letter not to associate with sexually immoral people--
10
by no means referring to this world's immoral people, or to the greedy and swindlers, or to idolaters; otherwise you would have to leave the world.
11
But now I am writing you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother who is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a reviler, a drunkard or a swindler. Do not even eat with such a person.
12
For what is it to me to judge outsiders? Do you not judge those who are inside?
13
But God judges outsiders. Put away the evil person from among yourselves.
