Beam - Vine's Expository Dictionary of New Testament Words

Beam

[ 1,,G1385, dokos ]
a beam," is perhaps etymologically connected with the root dek---, seen in the word dechomai, "to receive," "beams" being received at their ends into walls or pieces of timber. The Lord used it metaphorically, in contrast to a mote, "of a great fault, or vice," Matthew 7:3-Matthew 7:5; Luke 6:41-Luke 6:42.
