Wouldn’t it have been difficult for Joseph Smith to use antithetical parallelisms while dictating the Book of Mormon?

Antithetical parallelisms contain an opposition of words or meanings and can be found throughout the Bible. The Book of Mormon also contains many examples of antithetical parallelisms such as in Alma 60:36:

I seek not for power,

but to pull it down.

I seek not for honor of the world,

but for the glory of my God

How did Joseph Smith manage to include so many different types of parallelisms in the Book of Mormon? Why do examples like this sound far beyond Joseph’s abilities?
