You will read this post . . .

If you want to understand when to use "thou" and when to use "you".
Thee and thou used to be the singular forms. Thou was the nominative form, and thee was the accusative form. Thy and thine were the genetive forms, and their use followed the same rules as a and an.
Thanks again to English.SE. And please don't "y'all", because next think you know "y'all" will become used for both singluar and plural and we'll be even more screwed. Also an interesting note - "ye" is the accusative of "you". Who knew? I feel like I should have learned this at some point in my eighteen years of education.
