Immorality Rebuked
(Proverbs 5:1–23)

1Actually there is reported among you fornication, and such fornication as exists not even among the gentiles, that one of you should have his father's wife! 2And ye have become puffed up, and did not rather mourn, that he who did this deed might be taken away from you.

3For I, verily, being absent in the body, but present in the Spirit, have already, as if present, judged him who so wrought this; 4in the name of our Lord Jesus, ye being gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus, 5to deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord.

6Your boasting is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? 7Purge out the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, even as ye are unleavened. For our passover was sacrificed, even, Christ; 8therefore, let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Expel the Immoral Brother

9I wrote to you, in my letter, not to keep company with fornicators; 10not at all meaning, with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous and extortioners, or idolaters; since ye ought, in that event, to go out of the world; 11but, as it is, I wrote not to keep company, if anyone, called a brother, be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner?with such a one, not even to eat. 12For what have I to do with judging those who are without? Do not ye judge those who are within? 13But those who are without God judgeth. Put away the wicked man from among yourselves.
