ADELFE, AFES EKBALW TO KARFOS EN TWi OFQALMWi SOU...

AFES is 2nd person
EKBALW is 1st person

Is the idea here something like:

"Brother, (you) let/allow + I remove

But the "I remove" (1st person) becomes "me remove"

Hence, "(you) let me remove the speck from your
eye..."

Related to this question: Are these two finite verbs,
side by side, an unusual construction?

(Sorry for this strange format. I couldn't make sense
of my question without dividing it up like this.)
