 6 Your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?2

2 A little leaven affects the whole loaf; Paul is saying that if you tolerate obviously immoral sin from one member of your church, the whole body can be drawn into the deceitfulness of sin, ruining the entire body.
