comment How can we ensure a given “chiasm” was intentional by the author, and is not merely fanciful eisegesis?
@Jas3.1, I actually think intentionality is a spectrum of possibilities as well...In some places a chiasm may have been planned out and executed as a specific strategy by the author and in other cases it may have emerged because of stylistic habits or some subconscious intent of the author and every possibility in between. At the end of the day authorial intent is a tricky idea for any text (unless you can just ask the author and even then...), especially in a text as culturally and historically distant to us as the Bible.

comment Why are the peoples of your house your enemies?
To me this seems like a perfectly reasonable hyperbole.

Michah is describing how evil his society become: "The godly man is perished out of the earth...they all lie in wait for blood...the best of them is a brier...for the son dishoroureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother...a man's enemies are the men of his own house" (JPS). Does this answer your question or are you looking for something else?
