Beam @ occurs in the Authorized Version as the rendering of various Hebrew words. In 1Samuel:17:7, it means a weaver's frame or principal beam; in Habakkuk:2:11, a crossbeam or girder; 2Kings:6:22Kings:6:5, a cross-piece or rafter of a house; kjvKings:7:6, an architectural ornament as a projecting step or moulding; Ezekiel:41:25, a thick plank. In the New Testament the word occurs only in Matthew:7:3-4, 5, and Luke:6:41-42, where it means (Gr. dokos) a large piece of wood used for building purposes, as contrasted with "mote" (Gr. karphos), a small piece or mere splinter. "Mote" and "beam" became proverbial for little and great faults.
