Summary/Abstract: The paper focuses on the oldest Bible texts and their translations treated as an open complex self-developing sign system. We apply the synergetic approach so as to study: 1) the manifestations of basic synergetic categories – attractor, fractal, bifurcation, fluctuation, dissipative structures, holism, emergence, coherence – in a word, a word group, a sentence or a text; 2) the concepts anthropocentrism and anthropicity – two complementary principles as far as the creation, existence and development of Bible texts and their translations are concerned. God’s names – El/Elohim, Adonai and Yahweh are presented by means of the properties of the attractor whereas the translation differences are considered as a fractal
