John 4:15

Sir (Kurie). Not yet "Lord" for her. See verse Acts 11 . This water (touto to udwr). This peculiar kind of water. She did not grasp the last phrase "unto life eternal," and speaks half ironically of "this water." That I thirst not (ina mh dipsw). Final clause with ina, alluding to the words of Jesus, water that will prevent thirst. Neither come (mhde diercwmai). Carrying on the negative purpose with present middle subjunctive, "nor keep on coming" as she has to do once or twice every day. She is evidently puzzled and yet attracted.
