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

4 aIn the name of our Lord Jesus, when you are assembled, and 1I with you in spirit, bwith the power of our Lord Jesus,

5 I have decided to adeliver such a one to bSatan for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in cthe day of the Lord 1Jesus.

6 aYour boasting is not good. bDo you not know that ca little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough?

7 Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump, just as you are in fact unleavened. For Christ our aPassover also has been sacrificed.

8 Therefore let us celebrate the feast, anot with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

9 I wrote you in my letter anot to associate with immoral people;

10 I did not at all mean with the immoral people of this world, or with the covetous and swindlers, or with aidolaters, for then you would have to go out of the world.

11 But 1actually, I wrote to you not to associate 2with any so-called abrother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or ban idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler—not even to eat with such a one.

12 For what have I to do with judging aoutsiders? bDo you not judge those who are within the church?

13 But those who are outside, God 1judges. aRemove the wicked man from among yourselves.
