1 Corinthians 5:1-6 New King James Version (NKJV)
Immorality Defiles the Church
5 It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and such sexual immorality as is not even named[a] 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.[b]
6 Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?

18 I am giving you these instructions, Timothy, my child, in accordance with the prophecies made earlier about you, so that by following them you may fight the good fight, 19 having faith and a good conscience. By rejecting conscience, certain persons have suffered shipwreck in the faith;
20 among them are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have turned over to Satan, so that they may learn not to blaspheme.
1 Corinthians 5:9-11 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)
9 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral persons—
10 not at all meaning the immoral of this world, or the greedy and robbers, or idolaters, since you would then need to go out of the world.
11 But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother or sister[a]
who is sexually immoral or greedy, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or robber. Do not even eat with such a one.
1 Corinthians 5:12-13 New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition (NRSVCE)
12 For what have I to do with judging those outside? Is it not those who are inside that you are to judge?
13 God will judge those outside. “Drive out the wicked person from among you.
