Bible Commentary for John 4:13

Wesley's Notes for John 4:13


4:12 Our father Jacob - So they fancied he was; whereas they were, in truth, a mixture of many nations, placed there by the king of Assyria, in the room of the Israelites whom he had carried away captive, #2Kings 17:24|. Who gave us the well - In Joseph their supposed forefather: and drank thereof - So even he had no better water than this.

4:14 Will never thirst - Will never (provided he continue to drink thereof) be miserable, dissatisfied, without refreshment. If ever that thirst returns, it will be the fault of the man, not the water. But the water that I shall give him - The spirit of faith working by love, shall become in him - An inward living principle, a fountain - Not barely a well, which is soon exhausted, springing up into everlasting life - Which is a confluence, or rather an ocean of streams arising from this fountain.

4:15 That I thirst not - She takes him still in a gross sense.
