Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 7:5

_ _ Thou hypocrite — “Hypocrite.”

_ _ first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye — Our Lord uses a most hyperbolical, but not unfamiliar figure, to express the monstrous inconsistency of this conduct. The “hypocrisy” which, not without indignation, He charges it with, consists in the pretense of a zealous and compassionate charity, which cannot possibly be real in one who suffers worse faults to lie uncorrected in himself. He only is fit to be a reprover of others who jealously and severely judges himself. Such persons will not only be slow to undertake the office of censor on their neighbors, but, when constrained in faithfulness to deal with them, will make it evident that they do it with reluctance and not satisfaction, with moderation and not exaggeration, with love and not harshness.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 7:1-6.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 7:5

Thou hypocrite — It is mere hypocrisy to pretend zeal for the amendment of others while we have none for our own. Then — When that which obstructed thy sight is removed.
