1 Corinthians 5
Berean Literal Bible

Immorality Rebuked
(Leviticus 20:10-21; Proverbs 5:1-23)

1Sexual immorality is actually reported among you, and sexual immorality such as is not even among the pagans, so as for one to have the wife of the father. 2And you are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, so that the one having done this deed might be taken out of your midst!

3For I, though being absent in body, now being present in spirit, have already judged the one having thus produced this, as being present, 4in the name our Lord Jesus, of you having been gathered together and of me in spirit, with the power of the Lord Jesus, 5to deliver such a one to Satan for destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord.a

6Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? 7Cleanse out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, as you are, unleavened. For also Christ our Passover lamb has been sacrificed, 8so that we might celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, not with leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and of truth.

Expel the Immoral Brother

9I wrote to you in the letter not to associate with the sexually immoral, 10not altogether with the sexually immoral of this world, or with the covetous and swindlers, or idolaters—since then you would need to depart from the world. 11But now, I wrote to you not to associate with anyone being designated a brother if he is sexually immoral or a coveter, or an idolater or verbal abuser, or a drunkard or swindler—with such a one not even to eat.

12For what is it to me to judge those outside? Do you not judge those within? 13But God will judge those outside. “Expel the evil out from among yourselves.”b
