Well in terms of relevance it seems legitimate enough to use two different
verbs in a meaning based translation. The action taken in regard to a head
has different consequences than the same action taken in regards to a heel.
Given the objectives, target audience, intended use, of the NLT I don't see
anything wrong with this.
