Thank you, John, for a) giving me the reference which I had long since forgotten and b) correcting my corrupted memory banks.


I hope to be able to use it as an inscription on a bell before I die or retire, or possibly after if funds permit.

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'.
