Mote

MOTE. A particle of dust or chaff, or a splinter of wood that might enter the eye. Rendered as “speck” by NIV, the word is used by Jesus (Matt.7.3-Matt.7.5; Luke.6.41-Luke.6.42) in contrast with “beam” (kjv), “log” (rsv), or “plank” (niv) to rebuke self-righteousness in correcting small faults in others, while cherishing greater ones of our own.
