Book of Mormon: “Alma 11: A little humor? Slight irony?”
by grego

Zeezrom asks if Amulek will respond to a few questions:
Alma 11:21 And this Zeezrom began to question Amulek, saying: Will ye answer me a few questions which I shall ask you? …Will ye answer the questions which I shall put unto you?

Amulek replies:
Alma 11:22 …Yea, if it be according to the Spirit of the Lord, which is in me; for I shall say nothing which is contrary to the Spirit of the Lord.

Zeezrom asks his question (well, not really a question, let’s say he offers his first bribe):
Alma 11:22 …Behold, here are six onties of silver, and all these will I give thee if thou wilt deny the existence of a Supreme Being.

And here comes the answer—according to the Spirit of the Lord??
Alma 11:23 Now Amulek said: *O thou child of hell*, why tempt ye me?…

But looking at what follows, it’s apparent the Spirit of the Lord revealed things to Amulek.

Humor? Irony? Fun!
