It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication
as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s

might be taken away from among you.
For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as

I wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or
extortioners, or with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.

extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them
that are within?
But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves
that wicked person.
