What does John 4:13 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
John 4:13

Jesus answered and said unto her
In a mild and gentle manner, patiently bearing all her scoffs and flouts, and continuing to instruct and inform her, concerning this living water, showing the preferableness of it to all others:

whosoever drinketh of this water;
meaning in that well called Jacob's well, or any other common water:

shall thirst again;
as this woman had often done, and would again, as she herself knew, ( John 4:15 ) , and as Jesus did, who very likely afterwards drank of it, ( John 19:28 ) . For though water allays heat, quenches thirst, and refreshes and revives the spirits for a while, yet in process of time, natural heat increases, and thirst returns, and there is a necessity of drinking water again.
