The First Epistle of Paul to the Corinthians
[ 1] I T is actually reported that there is fornication among you and such fornication as is not even among the Gentiles, that one of you hath his fathers wife.
[ 2] And ye 1 are puffed up, and did 2 not rather mourn, that he that had done this deed might be taken away from among you.
[ 3] For I verily, being absent in body but present in spirit, have already as though I were present judged him that hath so wrought this thing,
[ 4] in the name of our Lord Jesus, ye being gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus,
[ 5] to deliver such a one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. 3
[ 6] Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
[ 7] Purge out the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, even as ye are unleavened. For our passover also hath been sacrificed, even Christ:
[ 8] wherefore let us keep 4 the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
[ 9] I wrote unto you in my epistle to have no company with fornicators;
[ 10] not 5 at all meaning with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous and extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world:
[ 11] but as 6 it is, I wrote unto you not to keep company, if any man that is named a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such a one no, not to eat.
[ 12] For what have I to do with judging them that are without? Do not ye judge them that are within?
[ 13] But them that are without God judgeth. Put away the wicked man from among yourselves.
