Psalm 54:3 Parallel
Commentary
Keil and Delitzsch Biblical Commentary on the Old Testament

Instead of הכּל, the totality, we have כּלּו, which denotes each individual of the whole, to which the suffix, that has almost vanished (Psalm 29:9) from the genius of the language, refers. And instead of סר, the more elegant סג, without any distinction in the meaning.
