    SEV Biblia, Chapter 7:5

    ¡Hipcrita! Echa primero la viga de tu ojo, y entonces mirars en echar la mota del ojo de tu hermano.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Matthew 7:5

    Verse 5. Thou
    hypocrite] A hypocrite, who professes to be what he is not, (viz. a true Christian,) is obliged, for the support of the character he has assumed, to imitate all the dispositions and actions of a Christian; consequently he must reprove sin, and endeavour to show an uncommon affection for the glory of God. Our Lord unmasks this vile pretender to saintship, and shows him that his hidden hypocrisy, covered with the garb of external sanctity, is more abominable in the sight of God than the openly professed and practised iniquity of the profligate.

    In after times, the Jews made a very bad use of this saying: "I wonder," said Rabbi Zarphon, "whether there be any in this age that will suffer reproof? If one say to another, Cast out the mote out of thine eye, he is immediately ready to answer, Cast out the beam that is in thine own eye." This proverbial mode of speech the Gloss interprets thus: "Cast out? yoq kisim, the mote, that is, the little sin, that is in thy hand: to which he answered, Cast out the great sin that is in thine. So they could not reprove, because all were sinners." See Lightfoot.


    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 5. Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye , etc.] Very rightly does our Lord call such a man an hypocrite, who is very free in remarking and reproving other mens sins, and covering his own; and indeed, one end of his critical observations, rigid censures, and rash judgments is, that he might be thought to be holier than he is. Christ very manifestly points at the Scribes and Pharisees, who were men of such a complexion; and whom he often, without any breach of charity, calls hypocrites. The meaning of this proverbial expression is, that a man should first begin with himself, take notice of his own sins, reprove himself for them, and reform; and then it will be soon enough to observe other mens. And then shalt thou see clearly, to cast out the mote out of thy brothers eye : then will he, and not before, be a proper person to reprove others; all objections and impediments to such a work will then be removed. Our Lord here speaks in the language of the Jewish nation, with whom such like expressions were common, and of long standing f465 In the generation that judged the judges, one said to another, yny[ ybm syq lwj , cast out the mote out of thine eye; to whom it was replied, yny[ ybm hrwq lwj , cast out the beam from thine eye: one said to another, thy silver is become dross: the other replies, thy wine is mixed with water.

    Again f466 , R. Taphon said, I wonder whether there is any in this generation, that will receive reproof; if one should say to him, cast out the mote out of thine eye, will he say to him, cast out the beam out of thine eye? Says R. Eleazer ben Azariah, I wonder whether there is any in this generation, that knows how to reprove.

    From whence it is clear, that these phrases were used in the same sense they are by Christ; and which is still more evident by the gloss upon them: for upon the word mote, it observes, That it is as if it had been said, wjq w[ , a little sin, which is in thine hand (i.e. which thou hast committed): the other could say to him, cast thou away lwdg w[ , the great sin, which is in thine hand; so that they could not reprove, because they were all sinners.

    Agreeable to these, are some other proverbs used by the Jews, such as a vice which is in thyself, do not speak of to thy neighbour, or upbraid him with it: and again adorn thyself, and afterwards adorn others.

    Which is produced by a noted commentator of theirs, to illustrate the text in ( Zephaniah 2:1) on which he also makes this remark; inquire first into your own blemishes, and then inquire into the blemishes of others.

    The sense of each of them is, that a man should first reform himself, and then others; and that he that finds faults with others, ought to be without blame himself.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-6 - We must judge ourselves, and judge of our own acts, but not make ou word a law to everybody. We must not judge rashly, nor pass judgmen upon our brother without any ground. We must not make the worst of people. Here is a just reproof to those who quarrel with their brethre for small faults, while they allow themselves in greater ones. Some sins are as motes, while others are as beams; some as a gnat, others a a camel. Not that there is any sin little; if it be a mote, or splinter, it is in the eye; if a gnat, it is in the throat; both ar painful and dangerous, and we cannot be easy or well till they are go out. That which charity teaches us to call but a splinter in ou brother's eye, true repentance and godly sorrow will teach us to call beam in our own. It is as strange that a man can be in a sinful miserable condition, and not be aware of it, as that a man should have a beam in his eye, and not consider it; but the god of this worl blinds their minds. Here is a good rule for reprovers; first refor thyself.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    5. See clearly (diableyeiv). The preposition dia, through, giving the sense of thoroughness. Compare the simple verb blepeiv (beholdest), ver. 3. With the beam in thine
    eye thou starest at thy brother's little failing. Pull out the beam; then thou shalt see clearly, not only the fault itself, but how to help thy brother get rid of it.

    To cast out (ekbalein). The Lord's words assume that the object of scrutiny is not only nor mainly detection, but correction. Hence thou shalt see clearly, not the mote, but to cast out the mote.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    7:5 {Shalt thou see clearly} (diableyeis). Only here and #Lu 6:42 and #Mr 8:25 in the New Testament. Look through, penetrate in contrast to blepeis, to gaze at, in verse #3. Get the log out of your eye and you will see clearly how to help the brother get the splinter out (ekbalein) of his eye.
