First Corinthians 5: 1- 8

5:1 Above all else, it is being said that there is fornication among you, even fornication of a such kind that is not among the Gentiles, so that someone would have the wife of his father.
5:2 And yet you are inflated, and you have not instead been grieved, so that he who has done this thing would be taken away from your midst.
5:3 Certainly, though absent in body, I am present in spirit. Thus, I have already judged, as if I were present, him who has done this.
5:4 In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, you have been gathered together with my spirit, in the power of our Lord Jesus,
5:5 to hand over such a one as this to Satan, for the destruction of the flesh, so that the spirit may be saved in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
5:6 It is not good for you to glory. Do you not know that a little leaven corrupts the entire mass?
5:7 Purge the old leaven, so that you may become the new bread, for you are unleavened. For Christ, our Passover, has now been immolated.
5:8 And so, let us feast, not with the old leaven, not with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

Luke 6: 6- 11

6:6 And it happened that, on another Sabbath, he entered into the synagogue, and he taught. And there was a man there, and his right hand was withered.
6:7 And the scribes and Pharisees observed whether he would heal on the Sabbath, so that they might thereby find an accusation against him.
6:8 Yet truly, he knew their thoughts, and so he said to the man who had the withered hand, “Rise up and stand in the middle.” And rising up, he stood still.
6:9 Then Jesus said to them: “I ask you if it is lawful on the Sabbaths to do good, or to do evil? To give health to a life, or to destroy it?”
6:10 And looking around at everyone, he said to the man, “Extend your hand.” And he extended it. And his hand was restored.
6:11 Then they were filled with madness, and they discussed with one another, what, in particular, they might do about Jesus.
