Search for "blaspheme - match all word forms" does not find "blasphemeth" in Luke 12:10, or in other places. Why?

I can confirm this in the KJV 1900. It does find the word in other versions. My search was for "blaspheme" in all Bibles, but the screenshot only covers the first dozen. The search found blaspheme 11 of the 12 versions including 5 Greek New Testaments.

The "match all word forms" feature uses an algorithmic, not dictionary-based, stemmer. It's currently tuned for modern English so it will miss some archaic word endings or forms commonly used in the KJV, e.g., abideth, hath, shalt, thou/thee/thine, etc.
