1 Corinthians Chapter 5:1-5

It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that is not tolerated even among pagans, for a man has his father's wife.

1 Corinthians 5:1-5
1
It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and such sexual immorality as is not even named among the Gentiles; that a man has his father's wife!
2
And you are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he who has done this deed might be taken away from among you.
3
For 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 name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, along with my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,
5
deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
