In the Psalms, King David called God My Salvation using two related Hebrew words. David’s life was full of experiences of God saving him from disaster and death.
Simeon referred to Jesus (Yeshua‘) as Your Salvation in his prayer in which he thanked God for allowing him to see the Messiah as a child. That was what Jesus represented—salvation. Jesus hand-delivered salvation from God.
