>From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thou

Originally, *thou* was simply the singular counterpart to the plural
> pronoun *ye <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ye_(pronoun)>*, derived from an ancient
> Indo-European <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proto-Indo-European_language> root.
> Following a process found in other Indo-European languages, *thou* was
> later used to express intimacy, familiarity or even disrespect, while
> another pronoun, *you*, the oblique/objective form of *ye*, was used for
> formal circumstances (see T–V distinction<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T%E2%80%93V_distinction>).
> In the 17th century, *thou* fell into disuse in the standard language but
> persisted, sometimes in altered form, in regional dialects<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_dialects_of_the_English_language#Europe>
>  of England <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/England> and Scotland<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scotland>
> ,[3] <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thou#cite_note-3> as well as in the

> Early English translations of the Bible<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bible>
>  used *thou* and never *you* as the singular second-person pronoun, with
> the double effect of maintaining *thou* in usage and also imbuing it with
> an air of religious solemnity that is antithetical to its former sense of
> familiarity or disrespect.[2]<http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thou#cite_note-Pressley-2> The
> use of the pronoun was also common in poetry.
