Nowadays? Register, I think. As far as I know, they are equivalent; Biblical (well, KJV) language uses -th more (though I think not exclusively). Also consider "ye/you"; if you make a difference, "ye" is subjective and "you" is objective case: "ye say" but "I say unto you" (and the vowels are exactly the other way around from the pair "thou/thee"!)
