_ _ draw water ... salvation an expressive image in a hot country. On the last day of the feast of tabernacles the Jews used to bring water in a golden pitcher from the fountain of Siloam, and pour it, mingled with wine, on the sacrifice on the altar, with great rejoicing. This is the allusion in Jesus’ words on “the last day of the feast” (John 7:2, John 7:37-39). The pouring out of water indicated repentance (1 Samuel 7:6; compare, as to the Jews’ repentance hereafter, Zechariah 12:10). There shall be a latter outpouring of the Spirit like the former one on pentecost (Joel 2:23).
_ _ wells not mere streams, which may run dry, but ever-flowing fountains (John 4:14; John 7:38), “Out of his belly (that is, in and from himself) living water” (Isaiah 42:18; Psalms 84:6; Zechariah 13:1; Revelation 7:17).
With joy Your thirsty souls shall be filled with Divine graces and comforts, which you may draw from God, in the use of gospel ordinances.
Therefore with joy shall ye (c) draw water out of the wells of salvation.
(c) The graces of God will be so abundant that you may receive them in as great plenty as waters out of a fountain that is full.
