How do delete certain lines alone which are matching with start and end string values in file?

Hi, In my previous post ( How to print lines from a files with specific start and end patterns and pick only the last lines? ), i have got a help to get the last select statement from a file, now i need to remove/exclude the output from main file:

Code:
Input File format:
SELECT  
ABCD,
DEFGH,
DFGHJ,
JKLMN,
AXCVB,
DFVBNM,
QWER,
RTU,
TYUI,
IOPL from test1
limit 1;

delete from test2;

SELECT  ABCD,
DEFGH,
DFGHJ,
JKLMN,
AXCVB,
DFVBNM,
QWER,
RTU,
TYUI,
IOPL from test1
limit 1;

create table as SELECT  
ABCD,
DEFGH,
DFGHJ,
JKLMN,
AXCVB,
DFVBNM,
QWER,
RTU,
TYUI,
IOPL from test1
limit 1;

SELECT  ABCD,
DEFGH,
DFGHJ,
JKLMN,
AXCVB,
DFVBNM,
QWER,
RTU,
TYUI,
IOPL from test1
limit 1;


SELECT 
ABCD,
DEFGH,
DFGHJ,
JKLMN,
AXCVB,
DFVBNM,
QWER,
RTU,
TYUI,
IOPL from test1
limit 1;

SELECT  
ABCD,
DEFGH,
from test1
limit 1;

delete from test2;

create table as SELECT  
ABCD,
DEFGH,
DFGHJ,
JKLMN,
AXCVB,
DFVBNM,
QWER,
RTU,
TYUI,
IOPL from test1345
limit 1;

create table as SELECT  ABCD,
DEFGH,
DFGHJ,
JKLMN,
AXCVB,
DFVBNM,
QWER,
RTU,
TYUI,
IOPL from test123
limit 1;



Code:
Input Format 2 ( which is the output of command ) awk '$1=="SELECT"{s=$0} END{if(s) print s}' RS= file


SELECT  
ABCD,
DEFGH,
from test1
limit 1;

OUTPUT Format should be INPUT Format - Input Format 2 ( only input format exact lines from 'select' to ';' should be removed from Input format.
