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

comment Why are the peoples of your house your enemies?
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?

comment What exactly did Moses do wrong at Meribah?
The unique analysis offered here is the most compelling of any I've ever seen. Part I deals with the classical medieval Jewish commentators but Part II is an extremely thorough and close reading of the text. I may try to summarize the main points in this essay and offer it as an alternative answer.
