Ibn Meisam's Commentary of Nahj al-Balagha has not only enjoyed a philosophical and theological place, but it has also enjoyed a literary and lexical importance. In this commentary there are a lot of verbal and rhetorical studies. Since a word is the main material of literature, and a good understanding of any literary work, needs to understand its words, Ibn Meisam, before a full commentary of terms, explained the meaning of words with a particular style. The present study examines, Ibn Meisam's method in the commentary of the words of Nahj al-Balagha by extracting some samples from it, in a descriptive-analytical way. In this paper, it is concluded that the commentator not only described the words, as an emulator and not only relied the meaning of the words from earlier sources But also he explained the meaning of the words by lexical and critical methods .He referred to the technical meanings, semantic differences of synonyms, and lexical derivatives. Sometimes he referred to Quranic verses, Imams's sayings, Arabic proverbs and poems, grammatical and rhetorical points. The commentator in some cases with critical approach, commented the opinions of previous commentators about the meaning of words to approve or criticize them or prefer some of them to others.
