1It is reported that immorality is common among you, and such immorality as is not known among pagans, that even a son should take his father’s wife. 2But instead of boasting as you have done, rather, had you sat down mourning, that he who has done this deed might have been removed from among you. 3For while I am far away from you in body, yet I am near you in spirit; and I have already judged, as though I were present, him who has done this deed. 4In the Name of Adoneinu Yeshua HaMashi’akh, gather together, and I will be with you in spirit and with the power of Adoneinu Yeshua HaMashi’akh, 5so that you shall deliver this man to HaSatan for the destruction of his body, in order that his spirit may live in the day of Adoneinu Yeshua HaMashi’akh.
6Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven will leaven the whole lump? 7Clean out, therefore, the old leaven, so that you may be a new lump, so that you can be matzot. For our Pesakh is Mashi’akh, who was sacrificed for our sake. 8Therefore let us celebrate the Khag, not with old leavening, neither with the leavening of evil and bitterness, but with the leavening of purity and k’dushah.
9I wrote to you in a letter not to associate with immoral persons. 10I do not mean that you should separate completely from all the immoral people of this world, or from the fraudulent, and extortionists, or from idolaters; otherwise you would be obliged to leave this world. 11Now what I have written to you is this: you are not to associate with any person who is known as a brother and yet is immoral, or fraudulent, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortionist; with such a person you must not even break bread. 12For what business have I to judge those who are outside [the congregation]? But you may judge those who are within [the congregation]. 13Elohim will judge the outsiders. Therefore, put away from among yourselves those wicked persons.
