God Save the King - Is this a British Salutation?

I am still wading through the Books of Kings and similarly to finding a smiley (see previous post) I came across "God Save the King".  Now somewhere in the past I have registered that this saying was typically British going back into the previous millenniums.  But how wrong can some of these early perceptions turn out to be?  Well it turns out that this expression was used four times in the early period of Israel's governance; 1 Samuel 10:24, 2 Samuel 16:16, 2 Kings 11:12 and 2 Chronicles 23:11.  Fancy that!
