"For one thing, the lack of common words for chemical concepts and processes, as well as the need for secrecy, led alchemists to borrow the terms and symbols of biblical and pagan mythology, astrology, kabbalah, and other mystic and esoteric fields; so that the even the plainest chemical recipe ended up readling like an abstruse magic incantation."
Libatius Borage, Advanced Potion-Making[src]

The Bible is a collection of sacred scripture of both Judaism and Christianity, both religions practised by Muggles as well as by Wizards.[2] Alchemists, because of the lack of common words for chemical processes as well as the need for secrecy, borrowed terms from biblical mythology and other esoteric fields.[3] The events surrounding the Philistine war with the Israelites (Goliath and the boy who slew him) are recorded in the Bible.[4]

Albus Dumbledore kept a large old Bible among old Daily Prophets and handwritten notes in his office during his tenure as Headmaster of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[1]
