ABSTRACT

The purpose of this article is to grasp which dynamic relationship the wisdom has to the creation through the analysis to Prov. 8:22-31. It is to be tried, to consider the intention of author, reader and the text. As a result we found, that the wisdom has a unbelievable worth more than we have ever thought. At first the wisdom had been very long time ago. Above all it is wonder, that the wisdom has participated in the process of creation of this world. It is why God alone did not create the world, but there was a wisdom as helper beside Him. Moreover this wisdom has a role of conciliator between God and human beings. That is, it is not a being like an object, but has a personality like human beings. Therefore it is described in Proverbs, that the wisdom calls people on the street. As a result of study we should change the paradigm to it that we had to this time. That is, the people do not own the wisdom, rather it leads them. If we like to be wise, we do not learn it, but should come close to it. One step more, we find God as a origin of wisdom. The writers of wisdom-books emphasize so repeatedly, that the fear of God is a wisdom.
