How change Priority field label to Severity in veiw issue screen?

I changed the Priority field name (label) to "Severity" and it is displaying "Severity" in the create issue screen for a project, however when I create an issue and it shows Priority in the view issue screen.  Is there a way to change it to view the issue screen? Here is my Behaviour Script:

def prName = getFieldById("priority")

Thank you,

Renaming fields this way is not possible.  The word "priority" will be used in loads of other places, no matter what you do with Behaviours or Javascript.

If you really want a severity field, then create it as a custom field, don't try to bodge priority to do it.

Thank you for your quick response.
