Do I need written permission to use quotes from the KJV bible in my spiritual book.

I have written a book that uses scriptural text from the King James Version bible. Do I need written permission since it is being sold to the public

The King James Bible is in the public domain, so you do not need to ask anyone permission to use it. Any published work that is pre-1923, you have full permission to use.

Currently, however, modern translations of the Bible tend to be under copyright. Zondervan owns some of the more popular translations of the Bible and requires written permission to use them in published works.
