Why would Joseph Smith include figures of speech in the Book of Moses, such as antenantiosis?

Moses 1:28 includes an example of antenantiosis, which is a practice of stating a proposition in terms of its opposite:

And he beheld also the inhabitants thereof, and there was not a soul which he beheld not; and he discerned them by the Spirit of God; and their numbers were great, even numberless as the sand upon the sea shore.

The Bible contains many examples of antenantiosis but would we expect it to be in the Book of Moses?
