(Latin: salvare, to save)

In scriptural language, the transference from straitened circumstances and other evils into a state of freedom and security. As sin is the greatest evil, Scripture uses the word mainly in the sense of redemption and liberation from sin and its consequences. In Saint Paul's Epistles "salvation" usually denotes deliverance from final wrath, as distinguished from "reconciliation" which denotes liberation from present wrath.
