1 Corinthians 5:6-8 Wycliffe Bible (WYC)

Your glorying is not good. Know ye not, that a little sourdough impaireth all the gobbet [that a little sourdough corrupteth all the gobbet]?

Cleanse ye out the old sourdough, that ye be new sprinkling together, as ye be therf. For Christ offered is our pask. [Cleanse ye out old sourdough, that ye be new sprinkling together, as ye be therf, or without souring. Forsooth Christ is offered our pask.]

Therefore eat we, not in old sourdough, neither in sourdough of malice and waywardness, but in therf things of clearness and of truth [of clearness and truth].

1 Corinthians 5:6-8 New Matthew Bible (NMB)

Your complacency is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven sours the whole lump of dough? Purge therefore the old leaven, so that you may be new dough, as you are sweet bread. For Christ our Passover lamb is offered up for us. Therefore let us keep holy day – not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of immorality and wickedness, but with the sweet bread of pureness and truth.

1 Corinthians 5:6-8 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

[a]Your rejoicing [b]is not good: know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?

[c]Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new [d]lump, as ye are unleavened: for Christ our [e]Passover is sacrificed for us.

Therefore let us keep the [f]feast, not with old leaven, neither in the leaven of maliciousness and wickedness: but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

  1. 1 Corinthians 5:6 Another end of excommunication is, that others be not infected, and therefore it must of necessity be retained in the Church, that the one be not infected by the other.
  2. 1 Corinthians 5:6 Is naught, and not grounded upon good reason, as though you were excellent, and yet there is such wickedness found amongst you.
  3. 1 Corinthians 5:7 By alluding to the ceremony of the Passover, he exhorteth them to cast out that unclean person from amongst them. In times past, saith he, it was not lawful for them which did celebrate the Passover, to eat leavened bread: insomuch that he was holden as unclean and unworthy to eat the Passover, whosoever had but tasted of leaven. Now our whole life must be as it were the feast of unleavened bread, wherein all they that are partakers of that immaculate Lamb which is slain, must cast out both of themselves, and also out of their houses and Congregations all impurity.
  4. 1 Corinthians 5:7 By lump he meaneth the whole body of the Church, every member whereof must be unleavened bread, that is, be renewed in spirit, by plucking away the old corruption.
  5. 1 Corinthians 5:7 The Lamb of our Passover.
  6. 1 Corinthians 5:8 Let us lead our whole life, as it were a continual feast, honestly and uprightly.

Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened.
