Salva'tion. n.s. [from salvo, Latin.] Preservation from eternal death; reception to the happiness of heaven.
As life and death, mercy and wrath, are matters of meer understanding or knowledge, all mens salvation, and all mens endless perdition, are things so opposite, that whosoever doth affirm the one must necessarily deny the other. Hooker.
Him the most High,
Wrap'd in a balmy cloud with winged steeds,
Did, as thou saw'st, receive; to walk with God
High in salvation, and the climes of bliss,
Exempt from death. Milton's Parad. Lost. b. xi.
