Default You/your = singular or plural

*******
First we must acknowledge the truth of things in the pure holy Bible.
Ye is plural
Thee,thy thou are singular
You must be interpreted in context and is plural in scripture.
We all know of the royal we.
But even King James as a king did not always use the royal we.
When discussing his context with the Earl of Buckingham he uses the term I some three times in the first sentence that I happened on.

Is the word I now considered plural?
In the Bible..you and your are plural.
But in the preface it is used in the singular despite the attempt of the royal we syndrome by yourself.
But I do see your point.
When addressing royalty, one does say You/ and Your Majesty.
But plurality??? All of the cases of You and Your were singular in the preface.
