I wrote to you in my letter (A)not to associate with sexually immoral people; 10 I did not at all mean with the sexually immoral people of this world, or with the greedy and swindlers, or with (B)idolaters, for then you would have to leave the world. 11 But [a]actually, I [b]wrote to you not to associate [c]with any so-called (C)brother if he is a sexually immoral person, or a greedy person, or (D)an idolater, or is verbally abusive, or habitually drunk, or a swindler—not even to eat with such a person. 12 For what business of mine is it to judge (E)outsiders? (F)Do you not judge those who are within the church? 13 But those who are outside, God [d]judges. (G)Remove the evil person from among yourselves.
