1750 Challoner Revision of the Douay-Rheims (DR)
1 Corinthians 5
1 The incestuous person 6 is cause rather of shame unto them, than of rejoicing. 7 The old leaven is to be purged out. 10 Heinous offenders are to be shunned and avoided.
5:1 ¶ It is absolutely heard that there is fornication among you and such fornication as the like is not among the heathens: that one should have his father's wife.
5:2 And you are puffed up and have not rather mourned: that he might be taken away from among you that hath done this thing.
5:3 I indeed, absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged, as though I were present, him that hath so done,
5:4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, you being gathered together and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus:
5:5 To deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
5:6 Your glorying is not good. Know you not that a little leaven corrupteth the whole lump?
5:7 Purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new paste, as you are unleavened. For Christ our pasch is sacrificed.
5:8 Therefore, let us feast, not with the old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness: but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
5:9 I wrote to you in an epistle, not to keep company with fornicators.
5:10 I mean not with the fornicators of this world or with the covetous or the extortioners or the servers of idols: otherwise you must needs go out of this world.
5:11 But now I have written to you, not to keep company, if any man that is named a brother be a fornicator or covetous or a server of idols or a railer or a drunkard or an extortioner: with such a one, not so much as to eat.
5:12 For what have I to do to judge them that are without? Do not you judge them that are within?
5:13 For them that are without, God will judge. Put away the evil one from among yourselves.
