The phrase is probably a shortened form of " shut up your mouth " or " shut your mouth up ". Its use is generally considered rude and impolite, and may also considered a form of profanity by some. Before the twentieth century, the phrase "shut up" was rarely used as an imperative, and had a different meaning altogether. To say that someone was "shut up" meant that they were locked up, quarantined , or held prisoner. For example, several passages in the King James Version of the Bible instruct that if a priest determines that a person shows certain symptoms of illness, "then the priest shall shut up him that hath the plague of the scall seven days".
