A group of people are about to kill a man laying on the ground. And the man says:

I'm not gonna beg. You think I care about me? You think it's me I care about?
It's you I worry about. Your salvation. Father, forgive them, they know not what they do.

Then they kill him.
What is your salvation means?

    You've exceeded the limits for a quote, but even with the extra information, I'm not completely sure who is talking.

    I can say that 'your salvation' sounds like a reference to Christian religious beliefs, in that his death will be on (held against) their souls. 'Father, forgive them, they know not what they do' is believed to be the first thing Jesus said after he was put on the cross, at the time of his death. This scene has very strong Christian symbolism, because this is what Jesus said about those responsible for crucifying him, just before he died. For more information on the quote, look here.
