Misremembered, I fear.

BCP: "They have ears, and hear not: noses have they and smell not." (Ps
115.6; "They have ears, and yet they hear not: neither is there any
breath in their mouths." (Ps 135.17).  KJV is similar.

You can't have 'they hath' any more than you can have 'they has'.
'Hath' is singular -  an earlier version of 'has'.
