3 I will
call [qara'] upon the LORD, [Yahovah]
who is worthy to be praised: [halal] so shall I
be saved [yasha`] from mine enemies. ['oyeb] KJV-Interlinear
3 I call
upon the Lord, who is worthy to be praised, And I am saved from my enemies. NASB
Call, 'qara,' refers to a continuing call, a never ending repetition of requests.
Saved, 'yasha,' refers to deliverance or rescue from difficult situations. These situations can be from any number of circumstances and are not limited to bad people but include social, financial, or just ones own dumb decisions that go badly.
The Lord is God, and refers here to the self-existent one, or the eternal one, and typically is used as the personal name of the second person of the Trinity, who is Jesus Christ.
Worthy of praise, is a phrase that separates God from all other living things or all things in general.
There is only one person who is worthy of praise and that is God. Not family, not ancestors, not celebrities, not made up deities, not people whoever they might be, not angels, not things, not anything or anyone or any place.
God alone is worthy. There is nothing and no one who possesses the necessary attributes or character that would qualify as worthy.
Worthy means deserving, respectable, good, moral. God alone is deserving. Man deserves nothing. Mans inventions deserve nothing. Man can neither earn or deserve anything. To do so would require arrogance as a justification for mans worthiness, and arrogance in itself cancels all worth.
Therefore, if you are to call upon anything or anyone, God is the only legitimate target for your call, prayer, request.
Calling upon anything else, the weather, the wind, your ancestors, animals, the moon, etc., is a total waste of time and is a fools pursuit.
