3 "And why worry about a speck in your friend's eye when you ha a log in your own? 4 How can you think of saying to your friend, "Let me help you get that speck in your eye", when you can't see past the log in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend's eye. (NLT)
