1 Corinthians 5:13

But them that are outside God judges. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
All Commentaries on 1 Corinthians 5:13 Go To 1 Corinthians 5

John Chrysostom

AD 407
Paul uses an expression taken from the Old Testament, partly because he is hinting that the Corinthians will be great gainers in being freed from a kind of plague and partly to show that this kind of thing is no novelty but goes right back to the beginning. Even Moses the lawgiver thought that people like this should be cut off, but he did it with greater severity than is shown here. Moses would have had the man stoned, but Paul thinks only of trying to lead him to repentance.
