5 It is actually reported that there is sexual immoralityam among you, and the kind of sexual immorality that is not even toleratedD among the Gentilesan—a man is sleeping with his father’s wife.ao 2 And you are arrogant! Shouldn’t you be filled with griefap and remove from your congregation the one who did this? 3 Even though I am absent in the body, I am present in spirit.aq As one who is present with you in this way, I have already pronounced judgment on the one who has been doing such a thing. 4 When you are assembled in the name of our Lord Jesus, and I am with you in spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus, 5 hand that one over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh,ar so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord.as
6 Your boasting is not good. Don’t you know that a little leaven* at leavens the whole batch of dough?au 7 Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new unleavened batch, as indeed you are. For Christ our Passover lambav has been sacrificed.F 8 Therefore, let us observe the feast, not with old leaven or with the leaven of malice and evil,a but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
9 I wrote to you in a letter not to associateb with sexually immoral people.c 10 I did not mean the immoral people of this world or the greedyd and swindlerse or idolaters; otherwise you would have to leave the world.f 11 But actually, I wroteA you not to associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sisterg and is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or verbally abusive, a drunkardh or a swindler. Do not even eat with such a person. 12 For what business is it of mine to judgei outsiders? Don’t you judge those who are inside? 13 God judges outsiders. Remove the evil person from among you.B,j
About Christian Standard Bible
The Christian Standard Bible (CSB) is a highly trustworthy, faithful translation that is proven to be the optimal blend of accuracy and readability. It’s as literal to the original as possible without sacrificing clarity. The CSB is poised to become the translation that pastors rely on and Bible readers turn to again and again to read and to share with others.
The CSB is an original translation: more than 100 scholars from 17 denominations translated directly from the best available Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic source texts into English. Its source texts are the standard used by scholars and seminaries today.
The CSB is trustworthy: the conservative, evangelical scholars of the CSB affirm the authority of Scripture as the inerrant Word of God and seek the highest level of faithfulness to the original and accuracy in their translation. These scholars and LifeWay, the non-profit ministry that stewards the CSB, also champion the Bible against cultural trends that would compromise its truths.
The CSB is clear: it is as literal a translation of the ancient source texts as possible, but, in the many places throughout Scripture where a word-for-word rendering might obscure the meaning for a modern audience, it uses a more dynamic translation. In all cases, the intent is to convey the original meaning of God’s Word as faithfully and as clearly as possible.
