AR 368. Verse 10. And crying with a great voice, saying, Salvation to our God, that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb, signifies the acknowledgment from the heart that the Lord is their Saviour. To cry with a great voice, signifies acknowledgment from the heart; "Salvation to our God that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb," signifies that the Lord is salvation itself, and that the salvation of all is from Him, thus that He is the Saviour. By "Him that sitteth upon the throne and the Lamb," is meant the Lord alone; by "Him that sitteth upon the throne," His Divine from which all things are, and by "the Lamb," His Divine Human; as may also be seen in (n. 273); they are both named, because from His Divine, from which all things are by means of His Divine Human, He was the Saviour; that they are one, is evident from the passages where it is said:--

The Lamb in the midst of the throne (Apoc. 5:6; 7:17).

The Lord many times in the Word is called "salvation," by which is meant that He is the Saviour; as:--

My salvation shall not tarry, and I will give salvation in Zion (Isa. 46:13).

Say ye to the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy salvation cometh (Isa. 62:11).

I will give thee that thou mayest be My salvation unto the end of the earth (Isa. 49:6).

This is Jehovah whom we have waited for, we will exult and be glad in His salvation (Isa. 25:9).

Salvation, in the Hebrew language, is called Joschia, which is Jesus.
