Possible Meaning of the Word Guile

Daniel H. Ludlow

Although the word guile is frequently used to mean "deceitful cunning" or "treachery," it can also denote the use of strategy. It is evidently used in the latter sense in Alma 18:23; in other words, Ammon planned or used strategy in arranging the questions he asked King Lamoni.
