How would Joseph Smith manage to only speak of the Lord’s “arm(s)” of mercy?

David Calabro notes how the Book of Mormon includes multiple references to the Lord extending his arm(s) of mercy:

It is interesting how all the references are consistent in their use of “arms” rather than hands etc. How did Joseph maintain such consistency in this specific expression throughout the Book of Mormon? How did he manage to create such consistent imagery involving arms, embracing and encircling?
