Summary/Abstract: Present short essay aims to point out consistency in utilising wisdom terminology in Hebrew text of the Book of Ben Sira (Ben Sira) as well as in its Greek translation by the grandson (Sirach). Both of them, especially Sirach, work in strongly Hellenistic context and this fact influences methodologies they apply in their common effort which consists in fortifying their tribesmen in faith and in exposing them the teaching about authentic wisdom. Essay presents and endeavours to prove this methodology as used in the Poem of the sixth chapter of the Book.
