What does John 4:15 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
John 4:15

The woman saith unto him, Sir
(See Gill on John 4:11);

give me this water, that I thirst not.
The Syriac and Persic versions add, "again":

neither come hither;
the Ethiopic version adds here, "again";

to draw.
This she said also, in the same sneering and scoffing way, as her talking of not thirsting and coming thither to draw water, shows; and it is as if she had said, pray give me some of this fine water you talk of, that I may never thirst again; and so have no occasion to be at all this fatigue and trouble, to come daily to this well for water: though some think, that she now spoke seriously, having some little knowledge of what our Lord meant by living water, but with a mixture of much ignorance, and that she heartily desired it; but the reason she gives, shows the contrary.
