1 Corinthians 5:1-5 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

Yet all manner of fornication is heard among you, and such fornication, which is not among heathen men, so that some man have the wife of his father [so that one man have the wife of his father].

And ye be swollen with pride [And ye be blown with pride], and not more had wailing, that he that did this work, be taken away from the middle of you.

And I absent in body [Soothly I absent in body], but present in spirit, now have deemed as present him that hath thus wrought,

when ye be gathered together in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and my spirit, with the virtue of the Lord Jesus,

to betake such a man to Satan, into the perishing of flesh, that the spirit be safe in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 5:1-5 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

How Paul curses the man who committed fornication with his stepmother.

There is a report abroad that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not once named among the Gentiles: that a man should have his father’s wife. And you swell, and have not rather sorrowed, so that he who has done this deed might be put out from among you. For indeed I, as absent in body yet present in spirit, have determined already (as though I were present) concerning him who has done this thing, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of the Lord Jesus Christ, to deliver him to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

1 Corinthians 5:1-5 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

1 That they have winked at him who committed incest with his mother-in-law, 2, 6 he showeth should cause them rather to be ashamed, than to rejoice: 10 Such kind of wickedness is to be punished with excommunication,  12 lest others be infected with it.

It [a]is heard certainly that there is fornication among you: and such fornication as is not once named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife.

[b]And ye are puffed up, and have not rather sorrowed, that he which hath done this deed, might be put from among you.

[c]For I verily as absent in body, but present in [d]spirit, have determined already as though I were present, that he that hath thus done this thing,

When ye are gathered together, and my spirit, in the [e]Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that such one, I say, [f]by the power of our Lord Jesus Christ,

[g]Be [h]delivered unto Satan, for the [i]destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.

1 Corinthians 5:1-5 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)

It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife. And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you. For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, to deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.
