The KJV (and Shakespeare) was before spelling (in English that is) became standardized.

It is fun in a way, though, because it's thought that folks with different accents in the British Isles sometimes unconsciously captured their disparate pronunciations in how they spelled their words on paper.

Old joke about an American visiting England in the 1950s and being irritated by the upper class local folk's attitude towards him (please excuse need for a little phonetic spelling):
American: I hate the way you guys are so paytronizing!
Brit: I think you will find that is pronounced 'pahtronizing'.
