KJV Translation Count — Total: 24x
The KJV translates Strong's G4990 in the following manner: Saviour (24x).
  1. saviour, deliverer, preserver

    The name was given by the ancients to deities, esp. tutelary deities, to princes, kings, and in general to men who had conferred signal benefits upon their country, and in more degenerate days by the way of flattery to personages of influence.(Wigram) The word soter was a common Greek epithet for the gods (e.g., Zeus, Apollo, and Hermes), active personalities in world affairs (e.g., Epicurus) and rulers (e.g., Ptolemy Philopator, and later Roman Emporers). (cf. LSJ and BDAG)

Heiland) (cf. B. D., under the word, I.); (Cicero, in Verr. 2:2, 63 Hoc quantum est? Ita magnum, ut Latine uno verbo exprimi non possit. Is est nimirum 'soter', qui salutem dedit. The name was given by the ancients to deities, especially tutelary deities, to princes, kings, and in general to men who had conferred signal benefits upon their country, and in the more degenerate days by way of flattery to personages of influence; see Passow (or Liddell and Scott), under the word; Paulus, Exgt. Hdbch. üb. d. drei erst. Evang. i., p. 103f; (Wetstein on Luke 2:11; B. D. as above)). In the N.

("The title is confined (with the exception of the writings of St Luke) to the later writings of the N. T." (Westcott as above.))
