King James Grammar

1 Corinthians 16:13 in the KJV says:

Watch ye, (plural imperative)
stand fast in the faith,
quit you like men, (singular imperative?)
be strong.

Can anyone explain why it shouldn't rather be "quit ye"?
To make things more intriguing, there is a similar line in 1 Samuel 4:9 where the idea is expressed "quit yourselves like men."
