1 Corinthians 5

Immoral Church Members
1It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality#1Th 4:3 among you, and the kind of sexual immorality that is not even tolerated#5:1 Other mss read named among the Gentiles#Gl 1:16  — a man is sleeping with his father’s wife.#Lv 18:8; Dt 22:30; 27:20 2And you are arrogant! Shouldn’t you be filled with grief#Lk 6:25 and remove from your congregation the one who did this? 3Even though I am absent in the body, I am present in spirit.#Col 2:5; 1Th 2:17 As one who is present with you in this way, I have already pronounced judgment on the one who has been doing such a thing. 4When you are assembled in the name of our Lord Jesus, and I am with you in spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus, 5hand that one over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh,#1Jn 5:16 so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord.#Mt 25:13; Ac 2:20; Php 1:6
6Your boasting is not good. Don’t you know that a little leaven#5:6 Or yeast, also in vv. 7,8#Lk 13:21; Gl 5:9 leavens the whole batch of dough?#Lk 13:21 7Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new unleavened batch, as indeed you are. For Christ our Passover lamb#Ex 12 has been sacrificed.#5:7 Other mss add for us 8Therefore, let us observe the feast, not with old leaven or with the leaven of malice and evil,#Mk 7:22; Rm 1:29 but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
Church Discipline
9I wrote to you in a letter not to associate#2Th 3:14 with sexually immoral people.#1Co 6:9; Eph 5:5; 1Tm 1:10; Heb 12:16; 13:4; Rv 21:8; 22:15 10I did not mean the immoral people of this world or the greedy#Eph 5:5 and swindlers#Lk 18:11 or idolaters; otherwise you would have to leave the world.#Jn 17:6 11But actually, I wrote#5:11 Or But now I am writing you not to associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister#2Th 3:6 and is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or verbally abusive, a drunkard#1Co 6:10 or a swindler. Do not even eat with such a person. 12For what business is it of mine to judge#Lk 6:37 outsiders? Don’t you judge those who are inside? 13God judges outsiders. Remove the evil person from among you.#5:13Dt 17:7#Dt 17:7
