Our own wallets having been filled with faults after he puts them back,
here goes with vitiis

is singular and so agrees with one of the wallets. post
here is used as a preposition governing tergum
. It's something like "he has put [the one] filled with our own vices behind [our] back."
He hung up with grave vices belonging to another before our heart.
the only thing here is that gravem
here goes with the other wallet -- something like "he has hung [the one] heavy with others' [vices] before [our] breast."
We are not able to see these evil things;
here means "by this thing" = "as a result", while you missed nostra
, so "by this thing we are not able to see our own evils."
The others fail as soon as, we are censors.
In Latin, conjunctions don't necessarily come first, so "as soon as other fail,..."
I hope that helps.
