Sexual Immorality Rebuked

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:1 -

It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and sexual immorality of such a kind as does not exist even among the Gentiles, namely, that someone has his father’s wife.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:2 - [fn]You have become [fn]arrogant and [fn]have not mourned instead, so that the one who had done this deed would be removed from your midst.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:3 -

For I, on my part, though absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged him who has so committed this, as though I were present.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:4 - In the name of our Lord Jesus, when you are assembled, and [fn]I with you in spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus,
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:5 - I have decided [fn]to turn such a person over to Satan for the destruction of his [fn]body, so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the [fn]Lord.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:6 -

Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little [fn]leaven leavens the whole lump of dough?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:7 - Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our Passover also has been sacrificed.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:8 - Therefore let’s celebrate the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:9 -

I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people;

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:10 - I did not at all mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the greedy and swindlers, or with idolaters, for then you would have to leave the world.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:11 - But [fn]actually, I [fn]wrote to you not to associate [fn]with any so-called brother if he is a sexually immoral person, or a greedy person, or an idolater, or is verbally abusive, or habitually drunk, or a swindler—not even to eat with such a person.
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:12 - For what business of mine is it to judge outsiders? Do you not judge those who are within the church?
Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:13 - But those who are outside, God [fn]judges. REMOVE THE EVIL PERSON FROM AMONG YOURSELVES.

Or have you...?
Lit puffed up
Or have you...?
Lit my spirit, with the power
Or that you are to turn
Lit flesh
One early ms Lord Jesus
I.e., fermented dough
Lit now
Or have written
Lit together if anyone called a brother is
Or will judge
