The First Epistle of Paul the Apostle to the Corinthians

Return to Index

Chapter 5

1

 It is universally reported [that there is] fornication among you, and such fornication as [is] not even among the nations, so that one should have his father's wife. 


2

 And ye are puffed up, and ye have not rather mourned, in order that he that has done this deed might be taken away out of the midst of you. 


3

 For I, [as] absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged as present, 


4

 [to deliver,] in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ (ye and my spirit being gathered together, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ), him that has so wrought this: 


5

 to deliver him, [I say,] [being] such, to Satan for destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus. 


6

 Your boasting [is] not good. Do ye not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? 


7

 Purge out the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, according as ye are unleavened. For also our passover, Christ, has been sacrificed; 


8

 so that let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with leaven of malice and wickedness, but with unleavened [bread] of sincerity and truth. 


9

 I have written to you in the epistle not to mix with fornicators; 


10

 not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the avaricious and rapacious, or idolaters, since [then] ye should go out of the world. 


11

 But now I have written to you, if any one called brother be fornicator, or avaricious, or idolater, or abusive, or a drunkard, or rapacious, not to mix with [him]; with such a one not even to eat. 


12

 For what have I [to do] with judging those outside also? ye, do not ye judge them that are within? 


13

 But those without God judges. Remove the wicked person from amongst yourselves. 


1st Corinthians 6
