"Paradidomi" (A Poem)

The men who wrote the KJV
wrote well but not inerrably.
“Betray” was not “paradidomi.”
He only said, “deliver me.”

The word “betray” should not have been
a gospel word or found therein.
Though one's described in all but one,
the word's not used by God's own son.

Against him, “heel was lifted up.”
He said it once at their last sup.
Not once before, not once again,
not with “betray” he named the sin.

He washed the heel, and it was clean.
So after that, don't call it mean.
He said to him that he'd “deliver.”
It was God's plan for his life's giver.
