Matthew 7:4-5

A (4) Or how wilt thou say to THY BROTHER,

B (4) Let me pull out THE MOTE out of thine eye;

C (4) and, behold, A BEAM is in thine own eye?

D (5) Thou hypocrite,

C′ (5) first cast out THE BEAM out of thine own eye;

B′ (5) and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out THE MOTE

A′ (5) out of THY BROTHER’S eye.

One thought on “Matthew 7:4-5”

  1. There is a prior chiasm in v3 in greek word order:

    A See
    B Speck
    C Eye
    D Your brother’s
    D’ Your [own]
    C’ Eye
    B’ Beam
    A’ Notice
