King James Version1 Corinthians5

1 Corinthians

1 It 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. 2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be tak­en away from among you. 3 For I ver­i­ly, as ab­sent in body, but pre­sent in spir­it, have judged al­ready, as though I were pre­sent, concerning him that hath so done this deed, 4 In the name of our Lord Je­sus Christ, when ye are gath­ered to­geth­er, and my spir­it, with the pow­er of our Lord Je­sus Christ, 5 To de­liv­er such an one unto Sa­tan for the de­struc­tion of the flesh, that the spir­it may be saved in the day of the Lord Je­sus. 6 Your glo­ry­ing is not good. Know ye not that a lit­tle leav­en leav­eneth the whole lump? 7 Purge 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: 8 There­fore let us keep 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 an epis­tle not to com­pa­ny with for­ni­ca­tors: 10 Yet not al­to­geth­er with the for­ni­ca­tors of this world, or with the cov­etous, or ex­tor­tion­ers, or with idol­aters; for then must ye needs go out of the world. 11 But now I have writ­ten unto you not to keep com­pa­ny, if any man that is called a broth­er be a for­ni­ca­tor, or cov­etous, or an idol­ater, or a rail­er, or a drunk­ard, or an ex­tor­tion­er; with such an one no not to eat. 12 For what have I to do to judge them also that are with­out? do not ye judge them that are with­in? 13 But them that are with­out God jud­geth. There­fore put away from among your­selves that wicked per­son.
