John 4:11 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Hast nothing to draw with - It seems that there were no means of drawing water affixed to the well, as with us. Probably each one took a pail or pitcher and a cord for the purpose. In traveling this was indispensable. The woman, seeing that Jesus had no means of drawing water, and not yet understanding his design, naturally inquired whence he could obtain the water.

The well is deep - If the same one that is there now, it was about 100 feet deep.

The kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared.--TIT. 3:4. I have loved thee with an everlasting love.
