John 4:11 Parallel
Commentary
Vincent's Word Studies

To draw with (ἄντλημα)

The noun means what is drawn, the act of drawing, and the thing to draw with. Here the bucket, of skin, with three cross sticks at the mouth to keep it open, and let down by a goat's-hair rope. Not to be confounded with the water-pot (ὑδρία) of John 4:28. The word is found only here in the New Testament.

Well (φρέαρ)

See on John 4:6. It may have been fed by living springs (πηγαὶ).

That living water (τὸ ὕδωρ τὸ ζῶν)

Literally, the water the living.
