Kühner, 1:912; (Photius, under the word; Rutherford, New Phryn., p. 99; Veitch, under the word)); 1 aorist ἐσώθην; 1 future σωθήσομαι; (σῶς 'safe and sound' (cf. Latinsanus; Curtius, § 570; Vanicek, p. 1038)); from Homer down; the Sept. very often for הושִׁיעַ , also for מִלֵּט, נִצֵּל, and הִצִּיל, sometimes for עָזַר; to save, to keep safe and sound, to rescue from danger or destruction (opposed to ἀπόλλυμι, which see); Vulg.salvumfacio (orfio),salvo (salvifico, libero, etc.);

a. universally, τινα, one (from injury or peril); to save a suffering one (from perishing), e. g. one suffering from disease, to make well, heal, restore to health: Matthew 9:22; Mark 5:34; Mark 10:52; Luke 7:50 (others understand this as including spiritual healing (see b. below)); Luke 8:48; Luke 17:19; Luke 18:42; James 5:15; passive, Matthew 9:21; Mark 5:23, 28; Mark 6:56; Luke 8:36, 50; John 11:12; Acts 4:9 (cf. Buttmann, § 144, 25); . to preserve one who is in danger of destruction, to save (i. e. rescue): Matthew 8:25; Matthew 14:30; Matthew 24:22; Matthew 27:40, 42, 49; Mark 13:20; Mark 15:30; Luke 23:35, 37, 39; passive, Acts 27:20, 31; 1 Peter 4:18; τήν ψυχήν, (physical) life, Matthew 16:25; Mark 3:4; Mark 8:35; Luke 6:9; Luke 9:24 and R G L in ; σῴζειν τινα ἐκ with the genitive of the place, to bring safe forth from, Jude 1:5; ἐκ τῆς ὥρας ταύτης, from the peril of this hour, John 12:27; with the genitive of the state, ἐκ θανάτου, Hebrews 5:7; cf. Bleek, Brief an d. Hebrews 2:2, p. 70f; (Winers Grammar, § 30, 6 a.; see ἐκ, I. 5).

b. to save in the technical biblical sense; — negatively, to deliver from the penalties of the Messianic judgment, Joel 2:32 (); to save from the evils which obstruct the reception of the Messianic deliverance: ἀπό τῶν ἁμαρτιῶν, Matthew 1:21; ἀπό τῆς ὀργῆς namely, τοῦ Θεοῦ, from the punitive wrath of God at the judgment of the last day, Romans 5:9; ἀπό τῆς γενεάς τῆς σκολιᾶς ταύτης, Acts 2:40; ψυχήν ἐκ θανάτου (see θάνατος, 2), James 5:20; (ἐκ πυρός ἁρπάζοντες, Jude 1:23) — positively, to make one a partaker of the salvation by Christ (opposed to ἀπόλλυμι, which see): hence, σῴζεσθαι and ἐισέρχεσθαι εἰς τήν βασιλείαν τοῦ Θεοῦ are interchanged, Matthew 19:25, cf. Matthew 19:24; Mark 10:26, cf. Mark 10:25; Luke 18:26, cf. Luke 18:25; so σῴζεσθαι and ζωήν αἰώνιον ἔχειν, John 3:17, cf. John 3:16. Since salvation begins in this life (in deliverance from error and corrupt notions, in moral purity, in pardon of sin, and in the blessed peace of a soul reconciled to God), but on the visible return of Christ from heaven will he perfected in the consummate blessings of αἰών μέλλων, we can understand why τό σῴζεσθαι is spoken of in some passages as a present possession, in others as a good yet future: — as a blessing beginning (or begun) on earth, Matthew 18:11 Rec.; Luke 8:12; Luke 19:10; John 5:34; John 10:9; John 12:47; Romans 11:14; 1 Corinthians 1:21; 1 Corinthians 7:16; 1 Corinthians 9:22; 1 Corinthians 10:33; 1 Corinthians 15:2; 1 Thessalonians 2:16; 2 Thessalonians 2:10; 2 Timothy 1:9; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 3:21; τῇ ἐλπίδι (dative of the instrument) ἐσώθημεν (aorist of the time when they turned to Christ), Romans 8:24; χάριτι ἐστε σεσῳσμένοι διά τῆς πίστεως, Ephesians 2:5 (cf. Buttmann, § 144, 25), 8; — as a thing still future, Matthew 10:22; Matthew 24:13; (Mark 13:13); Romans 5:10; 1 Corinthians 3:15; 1 Timothy 2:15; James 4:12; τήν ψυχήν, Mark 8:35; Luke 9:24; ψυχάς, Luke 9:56 Rec.; τό πνεῦμα, passive, 1 Corinthians 5:5; by a pregnant construction (see εἰς, C. 1, p. 185b bottom), τινα εἰς τήν βασιλείαν τοῦ κυρίου αἰώνιον, to save and transport into etc. 2 Timothy 4:18 ( εὐσέβεια σωζουσα εἰς τήν ζωήν αἰώνιον, 4 Macc. 15:2; many examples of this construction are given in Passow, vol. ii., p. 1802{a}; (cf.
