I have always been struck by how clumsy Zeezrom’s attempt to sway Amulek was. After all, it wasn’t as if Zeezrom cleverly hid his intentions or tried to trap Amulek in his words. He brazenly, bluntly tried to bribe him. I think that there might be something else going on here. Whether it is a previous relationship between the two of them, or sometime, that I am missing that makes what Zeezrom is doing clever. Or else, like is intimated in Crime and Punishment cleverness goes out the window when wickedness is the goal.
