Who is the Saviour מוֹשִׁיעַ ?

2Sam.22[ 3] The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.

Pss.106[ 21] They forgat God their saviour, מוֹשִׁיעָם

which had done great things in Egypt;

Isa.43[ 3] For I am the LORD thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour : מוֹשִׁיעֶךָ I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.

[11] I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. מוֹשִׁיעַ

Isa.45 [15] Verily thou art a God that hidest thyself, O God of Israel, the Saviour. מוֹשִׁיעַ

[21 ] Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the LORD? and there is no God else beside me; a just God and a Saviour; there is none beside me.

Isa.49[ 26] And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

Isa.60[ 16] Thou shalt also suck the milk of the Gentiles, and shalt suck the breast of kings: and thou shalt know that I the LORD am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.

Isa.63[ 8] For he said, Surely they are my people, children that will not lie: so he was their Saviour.

Jer.14[ 8] O the hope of Israel, the saviour מוֹשִׁיעַ thereof in time of trouble, why shouldest thou be as a stranger in the land, and as a wayfaring man that turneth aside to tarry for a night?

Hos.13[ 4] Yet I am the LORD thy God from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no god but me: for there is no saviour beside me.

Luke.1[ 47] And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

Luke.2[ 11] For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour , which is Christ the Lord.

John.4[ 42] And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour מוֹשִׁיעַ of the world.

Acts.5[ 31] Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour , for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins.

Acts.13[ 23] Of this man's seed hath God according to his promise raised unto Israel a Saviour , Jesus:

Eph.5[ 23] For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

Phil.3[ 20] For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour , the Lord Jesus Christ:

1Tim.1[ 1] Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour , and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope;

1Tim.2[ 3] For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour ;

1Tim.4[ 10] For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.

2Tim.1[ 10] But is now made manifest by the appearing of our Saviour Jesus Christ, who hath abolished death, and hath brought life and immortality to light through the gospel:

Tit.1[ 3] But hath in due times manifested his word through preaching, which is committed unto me according to the commandment of God our Saviour;

[4] To Titus, mine own son after the common faith: Grace, mercy, and peace, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ our Saviour .

Tit.2[ 10] Not purloining, but shewing all good fidelity; that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things.

[13] Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

Tit.3[ 4] But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,

[6] Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour ;

2Pet.1[ 1] Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:

[11] For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

2Pet.2[ 20] For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.

2Pet.3[ 2] That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour :

[18] But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.

1John.4[ 14] And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be the Saviour מוֹשִׁיעַ of the world.
