Expel The Immoral Brother
It is actually reported
That there is Sexual Immorality among you,
And of a kind that does not occur even among Pagans:
A man has his father's wife.
2 And you are proud!
Shouldn't you rather have been filled with grief
And have put our of your fellowship the man who did this?
3 Even though I am not physically present,
I am with you in spirit.
And I have already passed judgment
On the one who did this,
Just as if I were present.
4 When you are assembled in the Name of our Lord Jesus
And I am with you in spirit,
And the Power of our Lord Jesus is present,
HAND THIS MAN OVER TO SATAN,
SO THAT THE SINFUL NATURE MAY BE DESTROYED
AND HIS SPIRIT SAVE ON THE DAY OF THE LORD.
6 Your boasting is not good.
DON'T YOUR KNOW THAT A LITTLE YEAST
WORKS THROUGH THE WHOLE BATCH OF DOUGH?
7 GET RID OD THE OLD YEAST
THAT YOU MAY BE A NEW BATCH WITHOUT YEAST--
AS YOU REALLY ARE.
FOR CHRIST, OUR PASSOVER LAMB, HAS BEEN SACRIFICED.
8 THEREFORE LET US KEEP THE FESTIVAL,
NOT WITH THE OLD YEAST,
THE YEAST OF MALICE AND WICKEDNESS,
BUT WITH THE BREAD WITHOUT YEAST,
THE BREAD OF SINCERITY AND TRUTH.
9 I have written you in my letter
Not to associate with Sexually Immoral people--
10 Not at all meaning the people of this World
Who are Immoral, or the Greedy
And Swindlers, or Idolaters.
In that case you would have to leave this World.
11 But now I am writing you
That you must not associate with anyone
Who calls himself a brother
But is Sexually Immoral or Greedy,
An Idolater or Slanderer,
A Drunkard or a Swindler.
With such a man do not even eat.
12 WHAT BUSINESS IS IT OF MINE
TO JUDGE THOSE OUTSIDE THE CHURCH?
ARE YOU NOT TO JUDGE THOSE INSIDE?
13 GOD WILL JUDGE THOSE OUTSIDE.
'EXPEL THE WICKED MAN FROM AMONG YOU.'
(1 Corinthians 5)
