Cest ignorant ne cognoissant son mal,
Vouloit tirer de tous yeux le festu,
Ne voyant pas en soy le principal:
Mais par ce bois Dieu luy dit, Que fais tu?
Qui de tout vice & mal es abatu,
Et neantmoins veux autruy corriger?
Corrige toy: sinon seras batu.
Qui n’a vertu, ne peut autruy renger.

EIICE PRIMUM TRABEM[1]

First cast out the beam...

xviii.

Tśne igitur paleas alieno in lumine cernis,
Caeca premit lumen cuius utrunque trabes.
Scilicet errorum censebis crimina, cuius
Improba vix vllo crimine vita caret.

So then you see the mote in another’s eye, you whose eyes a blinding beam closes. It is clear that you will make accusations of sinfulness, you whose wicked life does not lack any [cause for] accusation.

Notes:

1.  Matthew 7:5; cf. Luke 6:42
