Dealing With a Case of Incest

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:1 - It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that even pagans do not tolerate: A man is sleeping with his father’s wife.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:2 - And you are proud! Shouldn’t you rather have gone into mourning and have put out of your fellowship the man who has been doing this?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:3 - For my part, even though I am not physically present, I am with you in spirit. As one who is present with you in this way, I have already passed judgment in the name of our Lord Jesus on the one who has been doing this.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:4 - So when you are assembled and I am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present,

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:5 - hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh,[fn][fn] so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:6 - Your boasting is not good. Don’t you know that a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:7 - Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:8 - Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old bread leavened with 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 - 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.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:11 - But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister[fn] but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:12 - What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside?

Unchecked Copy Box1Co 5:13 - God will judge those outside. “Expel the wicked person from among you.”[fn]
