    Can you give us the context in which you heard it?

    Let's say your grandmother gave you $10. "Save it for something special," she might have said. That means that you shouldn't spend it until you have something that is really worth buying.

    Perhaps someone gave you a bottle of really, really expensive wine. You decide to save it for a special occasion. When your daughter announces her engagement. You and your spouse and daughter and future son-in-law share this fine bottle of wine.

    We may become so if we save it from oblivion and deduce its lessons in the political, social, and educational domains...

    Excuse me! I thought you had written save it FOR something and now I see you wrote save it FROM something. My prior answer was totally pointless!

    Save something from something: rescue it.

    I saved the paper from the fire.
    The hero saved the princess from the wolves.
