1 Corinthians 5
The Holy Scriptures (Jubilee Bible 2000)

1It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife. 2And ye are puffed up and have not rather mourned, that he that has done this deed might be taken away from among you.

3For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, him that has so done this deed. 4In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, 5let such a one be delivered unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

6Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? 7Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ, our passover, is sacrificed for us; 8therefore let us celebrate the feast, not in the old leaven, neither in the leaven of malice and wickedness, but in the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

9I wrote unto you in an epistle not to associate with fornicators, 10yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world or with the covetous or extortioners or with idolaters, for then ye would need to go out of the world. 11But now I have written unto you not to associate with anyone calling himself a brother if he is a fornicator or covetous or an idolater or a railer or a drunkard or an extortioner; with such a one do not even eat. 12For why shall I judge those that are without? do ye not judge those that are within? 13But those that are without, God shall judge. Therefore, put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
