STRONGS NT 4992: σωτήριος

σωτήριος, σωτήριον (σωτήρ), from Aeschylus, Euripides, Thucydides down, saving, bringing salvation: χάρις σωτήριος, Titus 2:11 (Wis. 1:14; 3Macc. 7:18; σωτήριος δίαιτα, Clement of Alexandria, Paedag., p. 48 edition Sylb.). Neuter τό σωτήριον (the Sept. often for יְשׁוּעָה, less frequently for יֶשַׁע ), as often in Greek writings, substantively, safety, in the N. T. (the Messianic) salvation (see σῴζω, b. and in σωτηρία): with τοῦ Θεοῦ added, decreed by God, Luke 3:6 (from Isaiah 40:5); Acts 28:28; Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 35, 12 [ET]; he who embodies this salvation, or through whom God is about to achieve it: of the Messiah, Luke 2:30 (τό σωτήριον ἡμῶν, Ἰησοῦς Χριστός, Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 36, 1 [ET] (where see Harnack)); simply, equivalent to the hope of (future) salvation, Ephesians 6:17. (In the Sept. τό σωτήριον is often used for שֶׁלֶם, a thank-offering (or 'peace-offering'), and the plural occurs in the same sense in Xenophon, Polybius, Diodorus, Plutarch, Lucian, Herodian.)
