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

you are to deliver this man to Satan[a] for the destruction of his flesh, so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord.

Footnotes:

  1. 5:5 Deliver this man to Satan: once the sinner is expelled from the church, the sphere of Jesus’ lordship and victory over sin, he will be in the region outside over which Satan is still master. For the destruction of his flesh: the purpose of the penalty is medicinal: through affliction, sin’s grip over him may be destroyed and the path to repentance and reunion laid open. With Paul’s instructions for an excommunication ceremony here, contrast his recommendations for the reconciliation of a sinner in 2 Cor 2:5–11.
