Surely "xlura" is synonymous?

That's not what my dictionary says, nor the way I understand the term as
a native English speaker:
1 to win over by wiles : entice

2 to acquire by ingenuity or flattery : wangle <inveigled her way into a
promotion>

But even if you wanted a word meaning forcibly lure, you have xlura fo lo
bapli
