1 Corinthians 5:1 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

B. Moral Disorders[a]

Chapter 5

A Case of Incest.[b] It is widely reported that there is immorality among you, and immorality of a kind not found even among pagans—a man living with his father’s wife.

Footnotes:

  1. 5:1–6:20 Paul now takes up a number of other matters that require regulation. These have come to his attention by hearsay (1 Cor 5:1), probably in reports brought by “Chloe’s people” (1 Cor 1:11).
  2. 5:1–13 Paul first deals with the incestuous union of a man with his stepmother (1 Cor 5:1–8) and then attempts to clarify general admonitions he has given about associating with fellow Christians guilty of immorality (1 Cor 5:9–13). Each of these three brief paragraphs expresses the same idea: the need of separation between the holy and the unholy.
