Immorality Defiles the Church


1 It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and such sexual immorality as is not even 1named among the Gentiles— that a man has his father’s awife!
2 aAnd you are 1puffed up, and have not rather bmourned, that he who has done this deed might be taken away from among you.
3 aFor I indeed, as absent in body but present in spirit, have already judged (as though I were present) him who has so done this deed.
4 In the aname of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, along with my spirit, bwith the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
5 adeliver such a one to bSatan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord 1Jesus.
6 aYour glorying is not good. Do you not know that ba little leaven leavens the whole lump?
7 Therefore 1purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed aChrist, our bPassover, was sacrificed 2for us.
8 Therefore alet us keep the feast, bnot with old leaven, nor cwith the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Immorality Must Be Judged

9 I wrote to you in my epistle anot to 1keep company with sexually immoral people.
10 Yet I certainly did not mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or idolaters, since then you would need to go aout of the world.
11 But now I have written to you not to keep company awith anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortionerbnot even to eat with such a person.
12 For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside?
13 But those who are outside God judges. Therefore a“put away from yourselves the evil person.”

Do Not Sue the Brethren


1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unrighteous, and not before the asaints?
2 Do you not know that athe saints will judge the world? And if the world will be judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
3 Do you not know that we shall ajudge angels? How much more, things that pertain to this life?
4 If then you have 1judgments concerning things pertaining to this life, do you appoint those who are least esteemed by the church to judge?
5 I say this to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you, not even one, who will be able to judge between his brethren?
6 But brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers!
7 Now therefore, it is already an utter failure for you that you go to law against one another. aWhy do you not rather accept wrong? Why do you not rather let yourselves be cheated?
8 No, you yourselves do wrong and cheat, and you do these things to your brethren!
9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. aNeither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor 1homosexuals, nor 2sodomites,
10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were asome of you. bBut you were washed, but you were 1sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.

Glorify God in Body and Spirit

12 aAll things are lawful for me, but all things are not 1helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of 2any.
13 aFoods for the stomach and the stomach for foods, but God will destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for bsexual immorality but cfor the Lord, dand the Lord for the body.
14 And aGod both raised up the Lord and will also raise us up bby His power.
15 Do you not know that ayour bodies are members of Christ? Shall I then take the members of Christ and make them members of a harlot? Certainly not!
16 Or do you not know that he who is joined to a harlot is one body with her? For a“the two,” He says, “shall become one flesh.”
17 aBut he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.
18 aFlee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins bagainst his own body.
19 Or ado you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, band you are not your own?
20 For ayou were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body 1and in your spirit, which are God’s.

An Earnest Appeal for Guidance and Deliverance

A Psalm of David.

1 HEAR my prayer, O LORD, Give ear to my supplications! In Your faithfulness answer me, And in Your righteousness.
2 Do not enter into judgment with Your servant, aFor in Your sight no one living is righteous.

3 For the enemy has persecuted my soul; He has crushed my life to the ground; He has made me dwell in 1darkness, Like those who have long been dead.
4 aTherefore my spirit is overwhelmed within me; My heart within me is distressed.

5 aI remember the days of old; I meditate on all Your works; I 1muse on the work of Your hands.
6 I spread out my hands to You; aMy soul longs for You like a thirsty land. Selah

10 aTeach me to do Your will, For You are my God; bYour Spirit is good. Lead me in cthe land of uprightness.

11 aRevive me, O LORD, for Your name’s sake! For Your righteousness’ sake bring my soul out of trouble.
12 In Your mercy acut1 off my enemies, And destroy all those who afflict my soul; For I am Your servant.
