Where's my KJV?

I have always thought of thou and thee as just being archaic and only of aesthetic value.  I was talking to a smart friend of mine and lamenting the lack of a 2nd person singular pronoun in English.  He who pointed out that that was the function of “thou” and “thee” before they became obsolete.  I found more info at .
Thanks, Justin.  Now, where did I put that KJV?

101215 Malachi

Malachi 1
1.4, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 14  the Lord of Hosts...  This title appears a total of 21 x's in this short book.  That is probably significant. 
1.6  How have we...  Be careful what you ask ...especially if you don't really want to know.
1.9  with such a gift in your hand, will He...  Am I giving my best to God?
Malachi 2
2.7  This is a good verse for the preacher and the pew today.
2.9  but show partiality in your instruction...  This is a good caution against teaching our own thing as the expense of the purity of the covenant.
2.10  Have we not all one Father?  Ouch The application here is not what I first expected.  We are also being faithless to one another when we profane the covenant.  Food for thought.
Malachi 3
3.2  fuller's soap...  I just like the idea of the Lord Jesus being like soap.  He cleans us up.
3.5  oppress the hired worker... thrust aside the sojourner...  God is for the little guy.
3.6  I just love this verse.
Malachi 4
4.2  the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings...  I had always thought of this as a title for Christ like in "Hark the Herald Angels Sing", but it doesn't seem clear as I am reading it this time.
4.5 the great and awesome day of the Lord...
