Wisdom has always been appreciated all over the world and by all races and peoples. Bible which shows mental developments of the Jews and their culture for more than 1500 years (from the time of Moses till the creation of the New Testaments in the first century); Wisdom has taken different meanings and has been utilized with different manifestations. This article is an analysis of the concept of wisdom in 66 books and treaties included in Bible their explanations and elucidation of changes in wisdom especially the semantic contradictions in Paul’s letters. Taking into account the relationship between wisdom and religion, the researcher has attempted to specify the interaction of these two elements in Bible. To this end, after the morphological analysis of the term1’ wisdom” its derivations, synonyms and antonyms (such as wise man, wisely, stupid, ignorant, etc.) are searched for and analyzed at different parts of the Holy Book and through the analysis of the verses. Furthermore, different shades of the meanings of this concept are investigated and its semantic developments are elaborated on. Wisdom in Testaments is monotheistic insight which makes man, immune to errors and mistakes in terms of faith and actions; Shari’a and ethics are the important concepts.
