Ugh, I figured it out but still managed to get 1/2 of one wrong.

Thou and thee is like he & him (respectively), though it's really about you. The previous sentence makes little sense. Thy = your, thine = yours.

Unless it's before a vowel or an unvoiced h, and then thine is the same as thy.

I got 100%, but, just to prove that my pedantry knows no bounds, I'll also observe that "thine" shows up as the equivalent to "my" (or "thy") before consonants as well (though less commonly) throughout the early modern period. :-)

Like using "ye olde" because they forgot what a thorn was.
