1 Corinthians 5
The incestuous person
1 Corinthians 5:1 There goeth a commen reporte, that there is whordome amoge you, and soch whordome, as is not once named amoge the Heythen, that one shulde haue his fathers wife. 1 Corinthians 5:2 And ye are puft vp, and haue not rather sorowed, that he which hath done this dede, mighte be put fro amoge you. 1 Corinthians 5:3 For I verely as absent in body, but present in sprete, haue determyned allready as though I were present (cocernynge him that hath done this dede) 1 Corinthians 5:4 in ye name of oure LORDE Iesus Christ, wha ye are gathered together with my sprete, and with the power of oure LORDE Iesus Christ, 1 Corinthians 5:5 to delyuer him vnto Sathan for the destruccion of the flesh, that the sprete maye be saued in the daye of the LORDE Iesus.
is cause rather of shame unto them, than of rejoicing.
1 Corinthians 5:6 Youre reioysinge is not good. Knowe ye not that a litle leuen sowereth the whole lompe of dowe.
The old leaven is to be purged out.
1 Corinthians 5:7 Pourge out therfore the olde leuen, that ye maye be new dowe, like as ye are swete bred. For we also haue an Easter lambe, which is Christ, that is offred for vs. 1 Corinthians 5:8 Wherfore let vs kepe Easter, not in ye olde leuen, ner in the leuen of maliciousnes, and wickednes, but in the swete bred of purenesse and of the trueth. 1 Corinthians 5:9 I wrote vnto you in the Epistle, that ye shulde haue nothinge to do with whoremogers,
Heinous offenders are to be shunned and avoided.
1 Corinthians 5:10 & that meant I not at all of the whoremongers of this worlde, ether of the couetous, or of extorcioners, or of the that worshippe ymages, for then must ye nedes haue gone out of the worlde. 1 Corinthians 5:11 But now haue I wrytte vnto you, yt ye shulde haue nothinge to do with them: (Namely,) yf there be eny man that is called a brother, and is an whoremonger, or couetous, or a worshipper of ymages, ether a raylar, or a dronkarde, or an extorcioner, with soch shal ye not eate. 1 Corinthians 5:12 For what haue I to do to iudge them that are without? Do ye not iudge the that are within? 1 Corinthians 5:13 As for them that are without, God shal iudge them. Put awaye fro you him that is euell.
