shalt would be pass tense, correct? Shall would be present tense, and since it would be speaking in present tense, it should be Thou shall not pass.

Of course I could be completely wrong, after all, it's Olde English for a reason! It's... well Olde!

Then again, if you do a typo with shalt it is much more amusing. "Thou shat pass!"

No

Yes, you are. Shalt is the present tense form of the second person singular.

I shall
thou shalt

Shall is irregular though, take "to have"

I have
thou hast
he/she/it hath
you have

Lovely. Off topic ;-)
