Do not see the beam in one's eye, but the splinter at the other.
The blind person falls into the ditch after the other blind.
Christ tells his apostles:
Hypocrite, get that beam out of your own eye first; then you will see sharp enough to be able to remove the splinter that sits in your brother's eye." Lucas 6.
The blind man who follows the other blind (blindly) fall together in the same ditch.
Just like the engraving of Pieter Bruegel the old and Jerome Bosch.
