Matthew 7:3-5

Context
7:3 Why 1  do you see the speck 2  in your brother’s eye, but fail to see 3  the beam of wood 4  in your own? 7:4 Or how can you say 5  to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye,’ while there is a beam in your own? 7:5 You hypocrite! First remove the beam from your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
