(Latin: fons, fountain)
Vessels for holding holy water. They are sometimes imbedded in the walls, and sometimes rest on a pedestal. The shell-shaped font which has persisted was introduced in the 17th century. The most ancient portable fonts for use in aspersions were pails of lead or bronze covered with silver. The present form of the aspersorium was introduced in the 13th century. Private fonts are usually in the shape of a very small basin attached to the wall by means of a plate.

Holman Bible Dictionary - Water
The Bible speaks of water in three different ways: as a material resource, as a symbol, and as a metaphor.
A Material Necessity which God Provides Water as a material resource is necessary for life. The Bible states that God made water a part of His good creation and that He exercises sovereignty over it (Genesis 1-2 ; Isaiah 40:12 ). He controls the natural processes of precipitation and evaporation, as well as the courses of bodies of water (Job 5:10 ; Job 36:27 ; Job 37:10 ; Psalm 33:7 ; Psalm 107:33 ; Proverbs 8:29 ). God normally assures the provision of water for human needs (Deuteronomy 11:14 ). However, water is sometimes used in punishment for sin, as with the flood of Noah's day (Genesis 6:17 ) or the drought proclaimed by Elijah (1 Kings 17:1 ). The divine control of water teaches people obedience to and dependency upon God.
Many of the great acts of God in history have involved water, such as the parting of the sea (Exodus 14:21 ), the provision of water for the Israelites in the wilderness (Exodus 15:25 ; Exodus 17:6 ), and the crossing of the Jordan River (Joshua 3:14-17 ). Water was also involved in several of Jesus' miracles (Matthew 14:25 ; Luke 8:24-25 ; John 2:1-11 ).
Water was a crucial element in God's gift of the Promised Land to Israel (Deuteronomy 8:7 ). Palestine contains several natural sources of water: rain, springs, wells, and a few short, perennial streams. The average annual rainfall in Palestine is about 25 inches, all of which normally falls between November and April. The dry months of May to October made necessary the use of cisterns and pools for water storage. Several famous biblical cities had pools, such as Gibeon (2 Samuel 2:13 ), Hebron (2 Samuel 4:12 ), Samaria (1 Kings 22:38 ), and Jerusalem (2 Kings 20:20 ).
A Theological Symbol and Metaphor The Old Testament contains laws for the use of water in rituals as a symbol of purification. Priests, sacrificial meat, and ritual utensils were washed before involvement in rituals (Leviticus 1:9 ; Leviticus 6:28 ; Leviticus 8:6 ). Unclean people and things were also washed as a symbol of ritual cleansing (Leviticus 11:32-38 ; Leviticus 14:1-9 ; Leviticus 15:1-30 ; Numbers 31:23 ). The Book of Genesis uses water as a symbol of instability before the completion of creation (Genesis 1:2 ), and Ezekiel spoke of water as a symbol of renewal in the age to come (Ezekiel 47:1-12 ).
The Bible contains dozens of metaphorical usages of water. For example, in the Old Testament water is a metaphor or simile for fear (Joshua 7:5 ), death (2 Samuel 14:14 ), sin (Job 15:16 ), God's presence (Psalm 72:6 ), marital fidelity (Proverbs 5:15-16 ), the knowledge of God (Isaiah 11:9 ), salvation (Isaiah 12:3 ), the Spirit (Isaiah 44:3-4 ), God's blessings (Isaiah 58:11 ), God's voice (Ezekiel 43:2 ), God's wrath (Hosea 5:10 ), and justice (Amos 5:24 ). Among the metaphorical uses of water in the New Testament are references to birth (John 3:5 ), the Spirit (John 4:10 ), spiritual training (1 Corinthians 3:6 ), and life (Revelation 7:17 ). See Creation ; Famine and Drought ; Flood ; Rain .

Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible - Water
WATER . The scarcity of water in the East lends it a special value. Its presence in some form is essential to life. The fruitfulness of the land depends on the quantity available for watering. The Jordan, with its great springs, is too low for the irrigation of anything but the valley. There are many fountains in Palestine, but most fail in summer. The average annual rainfall approaches 30 inches. But this is confined to the months from April till October; and the water would rush down the slopes to the sea, were it not caught and stored for future use. The limestone formation, with its many caves, made easy the construction of cisterns and reservoirs to collect the rain water: thence supplies were drawn as required during the dry months. Wherever water is found, there is greenery and beauty all through the year.
In the Maritime Plain plentiful supplies of water are found on digging (Genesis 26:13 ff.). To fill up the wells would make the district uninhabitable. Invading armies were at times reduced to sore straits by the stopping of wells ( 2 Kings 3:19 ; 2 Kings 3:25 ), or diversion and concealment of the stream from a fountain ( 2 Chronicles 32:3 f.).
The earliest use of water was doubtless to allay the thirst of man and beast. Refusal of drink to a thirsty man would be universally condemned (Genesis 24:17 f., John 4:7 ). It is held a meritorious act to set a vessel of water by the wayside for the refreshment of the wayfarer. The same right does not extend to flocks ( Genesis 24:19 f.), for which water must often be purchased. Use and wont have established certain regulations for the watering of animals, infringement of which frequently causes strife ( Genesis 29:2 ff., Exodus 2:16 ff.; cf. Genesis 26:20 etc.). The art of irrigation (wh. see) was employed in ancient days ( Psalms 1:3 ; Psalms 65:10 , Ezekiel 17:7 etc.), and reached its fullest development in the Roman period. To this time also belong many ruins of massive aqueducts, leading water to the cities from distant sources.
Cisterns and springs are not common property. Every considerable house has a cistern for rain water from roof and adjoining areas. Importance is attached to plunging in the buckets by which the water is drawn up, this preventing stagnation. The springs, and cisterns made in the open country, are the property of the local family or tribe, from whom water, if required in any quantity, must be bought. The mouth of the well is usually covered with a great stone. Drawing of water for domestic purposes is almost exclusively the work of women ( Genesis 24:11 , John 4:7 etc.). In crossing the desert, water is carried in ‘bottles’ of skin ( Genesis 21:14 ).
The ‘living,’ i.e. ‘flowing’ water of the spring is greatly preferred to the ‘dead’ water of the cistern, and it stands frequently for the vitalizing Influences of God’s grace ( Jeremiah 2:13 , Zechariah 14:3 , John 4:10 etc.). Many Scripture references show how the cool, refreshing, fertilizing qualities of water are prized in a thirsty land ( Proverbs 25:26 , Isaiah 44:14 , Jeremiah 17:8 , Luke 16:24 etc.). Water is furnished to wash the feet and hands of a guest ( Luke 7:44 ). To pour water on the hands is the office of a servant ( 2 Kings 3:11 ). The sudden spates of the rainy season are the symbol of danger ( Psalms 18:16 ; Psalms 32:6 , Isaiah 28:17 etc.), and their swift passing symbolizes life’s transiency ( Job 11:18 , Psalms 58:7 ). Water is also the symbol of weakness and Instability ( Genesis 49:4 , Ezekiel 21:7 etc.). Cf. City; Jerusalem, I. 4. For ‘Water-gate’ see Nethinim, p. 654 a .

Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Holy Water
Holy water, indeed! a vile mixture, neither fit for man nor beast. You see this liquid virtue at the doors of all the churches ready for the brows of the faithful, but what is far more curious, you observe it in little pots placed for use in the cemeteries; and that the passer-by may give the dead a showery benediction, there are little sprinkling brushes in the pots with which to scatter the precious mixture. A mother's tears over her dead babe are far more in place than such foolery. Holy water! bah! See how the rain pours down from yonder black cloud which has passed over the rugged crags of Pilatus; that sort of holy water is infinitely more likely to moisten the clay of the defunct, and bring plenteous blessing to the living, than all the hogsheads of aqueous fluid that priests ever mumbled over. Holy water, indeed! If there be such a thing, it trickles from the eye of penitence, bedews the cheek of gratitude, and falls upon the page of holy Scripture when the word is applied with power. Standing where, when the rain is over, one can see the fair Lake of Cucerne brimming with crystal, and the clouds among the Alpine peaks all charged with moisture, rendered golden by the sun's clear shining, one feels indignant at the idea that the little driblets of nastiness in yonder pots and shells should be venerated, and all nature's reservoirs accounted common or unclean. It needs no small measure of prudence to restrain a man from tumbling pots and pans and holy liquids headlong to the ground. Human folly, how far wilt thou not go when priests lead thee by the nose!

Holman Bible Dictionary - Bitter Water
The water drunk by a woman suspected of adultery (Numbers 5:11-31 ). If a man suspected his wife had been unfaithful to him but was not a witness to the act and could not produce witnesses to the act, the woman was taken to the priest who arranged an ordeal to determine the woman's innocence or guilt. When the man brought the woman to the priest, he brought an offering of jealousy or remembrance (a cereal offering of barley). The priest seated the woman before the sanctuary facing the altar. The woman's hair was unbound as a sign of her shame. The woman held the offering, and the priest held the vessel containing the bitter water. The bitter water was a combination of holy water and dust from the sanctuary floor. At this point the woman took an oath: if she was innocent, the water would not harm her; if she was guilty, then her “thigh would rot” and her “body swell.” The woman affirmed the oath with a double, “amen.” The priest wrote the curse (Numbers 5:21-22 ) on a parchment and washed the ink off the page into the water. The priest then took the offering and burned it upon the altar, after which the woman drank the bitter water. If she was innocent, she would not be harmed and would conceive children as a blessing. If she was guilty, the curse would take effect. The man bore no guilt if his suspicions proved false—that is, he had not willingly broken the ninth commandment against bearing false witness. The woman, on the other hand, bore the consequences of her guilt (Numbers 5:31 ).

Smith's Bible Dictionary - Water of Jealousy
(Numbers 5:11-31 ) The ritual prescribed consisted in the husband's bringing before the priest the woman suspected of infidelity, and the essential part of it is unquestionably the oath to which the "water" was subsidiary, symbolical and ministerial. With her he was to bring an offering of barley meal. As she stood holding the offering, so the priest stood holding till earthen vessel of holy water mixed with the dust from the floor of the sanctuary, and, declaring her free from all evil consequences if innocent, solemnly devoted her in the name of Jehovah to be "a curse and an oath among her people" if guilty. He then "wrote these curses in a book and blotted them out with the bitter water." and having thrown the handful of meal on the altar, "caused the woman to drink" the potion thus drugged, she moreover answering to the words of his imprecation, "Amen, amen." Josephus adds, if the suspicion was unfounded, she obtained conception; if true, she died infamously, (This was entirely different from most trials of this kind, for the bitter water the woman must drink was harmless in itself, and only by a direct act of God could it injure her it guilty while in most heathen trials the suspected party must take poison, or suffer that which only a miracle would save them from if they were innocent. --ED.)
In the NT, after the Gospels, water is nearly always used in a figurative or symbolical sense.
1. The words employed by Christ in Acts 1:5 seem to echo Matthew 3:11,Mark 1:8,Luke 3:16,John 1:33. Water was the element in which John baptized his penitents, and the best that he had; but he was profoundly conscious of its inadequacy, and eagerly expectant of an altogether different kind of baptism, to be introduced by the Messiah. It has been contended that the πνεῦμα ἄγιον and the πῦρ which he desired were the sweeping wind and the destroying fire of judgment (so, e.g., A. B. Bruce, EGT , ‘Matthew,’ London, 1897, p. 84), but it is more likely that what he longed for was the life-giving breath and the purifying fire of the Messianic era. If we must not read into his words the Pentecostal and similar experiences, we need not eliminate from them the highest prophetic ideals. When Christ confirms His forerunner’s distinction between baptism in water and baptism in the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:5), He certainly regards the latter not as a blast of judgment but as the supreme gift of Divine grace; and Peter, who ‘remembered the word of the Lord,’ and no doubt the tone in which He uttered it, quotes it not as a menace but as an evangelical promise (Acts 11:16). Water is referred to in connexion with the baptism of the eunuch (Acts 8:36; Acts 8:38-39) and of Cornelius (Acts 10:47). In the latter case the baptism in water is the immediate sequel to the earliest baptism of the Gentiles with the Holy Spirit, which was attended with the rapturous utterances known as glossolalia.
2. In Ephesians 5:26 the Church is said to be cleansed by the washing (or laver, τῷ λουτρῷ) of water with the word, baptism being regarded as the seal and symbol of a spiritual experience which is mediated by faith in the gospel.
3. The writer of Hebrews (Hebrews 9:19) says that water was used along with blood-either to prevent coagulation or as a symbol of purity-at the institution of the ancient covenant, a detail which is not mentioned in Exodus 24:3 ff. It is a striking fact that in his review of the Levitical ordinances this writer never quotes the LXX phrase ὕδωρ ῥαντισμοῦ, ‘water of sprinkling,’ which occurs four times in Numbers 19, but coins in its place the phrase αἷμα ῥαντισμοῦ, ‘blood of sprinkling’ (Hebrews 12:24). It is his conviction that, while the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer (according to a Scripture which he does not question) cleanse the flesh (Hebrews 9:13), and while water purifies the body (Hebrews 10:22), only the blood of Christ can sprinkle the heart from an evil conscience (Hebrews 9:14,Hebrews 10:22). He does not, as F. Delitzsch (Commentary on the Epistle to the Hebrews, ii.  179) thinks, suggest that the water of baptism has cleansing virtue because ‘sacramentally impregnated’ with the blood of Christ. Just as he altogether ignores the sacramental value of the Levitical rites which he enumerates, it is not his task to give a philosophy of the Christian sacraments. His distinctive doctrine, to the enforcement of which he devotes his whole strength, is that, while all ritual is at the best but outward and symbolic, the spiritual appropriation of Christ and His atonement by faith has virtue to penetrate and purify the whole personality, beginning with the heart.
4. Peter sees a parallel between the water of Noah’s flood and that of baptism (1 Peter 3:20), and Paul finds a mystical and sacramental meaning in the sea and the cloud, in both of which the Israelites may be said to have been baptized into Moses (1 Corinthians 10:2).
5. It is the teaching of John that Jesus Christ came by (διά) water and blood, not with (ἐν) the water only, but with the water and the blood (1 John 5:6). Historically the baptism and death of the Messiah were crises in His activity, occurring once for all at the beginning and the end of His ministry, but spiritually He ever abides with and in the water and the blood, which are ‘the two wells of life in His Church, His baptism being repeated in every fresh act of baptism, and His blood of atonement never failing in the communion cup’ (H. J. Holtzmann, Handkomm. zum NT, Freiburg i. B., 1891, ii. 236).
6. James (James 3:11-12) illustrates the moral law that the same heart cannot overflow in both blessings and curses by the natural law that the same fountain cannot send forth both sweet water and bitter-a variation on Christ’s words in Matthew 7:16-17.
7. The prophet of the Revelation (recalling Ezekiel 1:24; Ezekiel 43:2) once compares the voice of Christ (Revelation 1:15), and twice that of the great multitude of the redeemed (Revelation 14:2,Revelation 19:6), to the voice of many waters, in the one case thinking perhaps of the music of waves quietly breaking, in the other of the thunder of great billows crashing, around the aegean island which was his place of exile. He constantly uses fountains of water, and clear rivers, as symbols of spiritual life and blessing. Per contra, he imagines ‘the angel of the waters’ turning Rome’s rivers and fountains of water into blood (Revelation 16:4); for, as she has shed the blood of saints like water, it is but just that she should have to drink blood-a grim species of poetic justice. The great star Wormwood falls in Earth’s sweet waters, turning them to wormwood, and those who drink of them die because they are so bitter (Revelation 8:9-11). The waters of the Euphrates are to be dried up, like the Jordan before Joshua, that the powers of the East-Parthia and her confederates-may come to the invasion of the Roman Empire (Revelation 16:12). The great harlot, Rome, sits proudly upon many waters-ruling peoples and nations by many rivers and seas (Revelation 17:1; Revelation 17:15)-but her day of judgment and dethronement is in sight (Revelation 17:1).
Numbers 5:11-31. The appointed test of a wife's infidelity; an instance of the special providence which ruled the Israelite theocracy (Numbers 5). An ordeal which could not injure the innocent at all (for the ingredients were in themselves harmless), or punish the guilty except by miracle; whereas in the ordeals by fire in the dark ages the innocent could scarcely escape except by miracle. The husband brought the woman before the priest, bearing the tenth of an ephah of barley meal, which was thrown on the blazing altar. As she stood holding the offering, so the priest held an earthen vessel of holy water mixed with the dust of the floor of the sanctuary, and declared her freedom from hurt if innocent, but cursed her if guilty; he then wrote the curses in a book and washed them INTO (so translated Numbers 5:23) the bitter water, which the woman had then to drink, answering "amen" to the curse.
If innocent she obtained conception (Numbers 5:28). Thus the law provided a legal vent for jealousy, mitigating its violent outbursts, so terrible in orientals, protecting the woman if innocent, and punishing her by divine interposition if guilty. Dust is the emblem of condemnation (Genesis 3:14; Micah 7:17; compare John 8:6; John 8:8). Her drinking the water symbolized her full acceptance of the conditional curse (Ezekiel 3:1-3; Jeremiah 15:16; Revelation 10:9) and its actual operation on her if guilty (Psalms 109:18). The oath and the solemn ritual accompanying would deter a guilty woman from facing it. No instance is recorded of the use of this ordeal, as probably the husband of an .adulteress generally preferred the castor method, namely, to divorce the guilty wife.
The Talmud says the trial lapsed into disuse 40 years before the destruction of Jerusalem, and that because adultery was so common God would no longer inflict upon women the curses (compare Hosea 4:14). The Egyptian romance of Setnau (the third century B.C.) illustrates it; Ptahneferka takes a leaf of papyrus and on it copies a magical formula, then dissolves the writing in water, drinks the decoction, and knows in consequence all it contains. Moses probably, as in other cases, under God's direction modified existing usages. A trial by red water among West Africans somewhat accords with the Mosaic institution.

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Water (2)
WATER (ὕδωρ).—For an Eastern country, Palestine (except in the Negeb and the districts which are desert) has a fairly abundant supply of water. It is described as ‘a land of brooks (torrent-valleys), of fountains and depths, that spring out of the valleys and hills’ (Deuteronomy 8:7). It is a matter of dispute whether the climate has changed since OT times. The rainy season is in winter, from November to March, when the rains are generally heavy. At other times there are only occasional showers. ‘The former rain and the latter rain’ (Deuteronomy 11:14) come about the autumn and spring equinox respectively. The rainfall on an average is from 25 to 30 inches in ordinary seasons (the average rainfall in England is less than 30 inches), but there are times of drought which cause great loss and suffering. In Galilee the water supply is much greater than in Judaea. The storage of water is much more imperfect than in former times. In many places the ruins of artificial tanks, pools, and aqueducts are visible. The chief waters which are referred to in the Gospels are those of the Sea of Galilee and the river Jordan.
Water is frequently mentioned in the Gospels (most instances are found in Jn.), both in its literal and figurative meanings. 1. Literally: e.g. ‘Jesus went up straightway out of the water’ (Matthew 3:16 || Mark 1:10); ‘Send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water’ (Luke 16:24); ‘John was baptizing in aenon, near to Salim, because there was much water there’ (John 5:1-7). The water of the pool of Bethesda (John 3:23) was supposed to have curative powers. Part of v. 3 (‘waiting for the moving of the waters’) and the whole of v. 4 are now rejected by critical editors. The moving of the water was a natural phenomenon, the flow of the spring being intermittent. The disciples who were sent to prepare for the observance of the Passover were instructed to look for ‘a man bearing a pitcher of water’ (Mark 14:13 || Luke 22:10). As water is usually carried by women in the East, the man bearing the pitcher would easily be distinguished. It was perhaps a token arranged beforehand, so that the place of observance should not be known till the last moment. See also art. Pitcher. In John 19:34 it is recorded that at the crucifixion of Jesus one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and forthwith there came out blood and water; see art. Blood and Water.
2. The figurative use of water in the Gospels is varied. It is a symbol (i.) of the moral cleansing of life in repentance, ‘I baptize you with water unto repentance’ (Matthew 3:11,Mark 1:8,Luke 3:16,John 1:23-26); (ii.) its symbolical reference in connexion with the new birth is admitted, but its significance is uncertain, ‘Except a man be born of water and spirit (ἐξ ὕδατος καὶ πνεύματος), he cannot enter into the kingdom of God’ (John 3:5). The phrase ‘water and spirit’ has been regarded as an instance of hendiadys, and interpreted as ‘spiritual water’ (Neil, Figurative Language in the Bible). Others take it as referring to the baptism of John, and as indicating that repentance is an essential factor in the new birth (Expos. Times, vol. iii. p. 318). It has also been interpreted as referring to the sacrament of baptism. This is the most ancient and general view. Wendt and others, however, regard the words ὕδατος καί as a post-Apostolic interpolation (Gospel according to St. John, ad loc). This is the most probable conclusion, unless the words are interpreted as referring to the baptism of John unto repentance; see Expos. Times, vol. xv. p. 413. (iii.) Water is also used as a symbol of innocence: ‘Pilate took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person’ (Matthew 27:24). (iv.) As a sign of hospitality or respect (see Genesis 24:32; Genesis 43:24). Jesus said to Simon the Pharisee, ‘I entered into thy house, thou gavest me no water for my feet’ (Luke 7:44). (v.) At the supper in the upper room (John 13:1-7) the water for the feet had not been provided. The disciples had not noticed the omission, or they were each unwilling to undertake the servile duty. Then ‘Jesus riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that, he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet’ (John 13:4-5). The ordered detail of the narrative is an indication of the profound impression which the action of Jesus had made upon the Evangelist. The act was full of significance. It was a symbolic service. It taught the disciples the duty of humility, and the need of daily cleansing from the daily defilement of sin. (vi.) In His conversation with the woman of Samaria, Jesus linked the water which she sought at the well with the living water which He alone could give. He uses it as a symbol of eternal life, the blessings of the gospel in their satisfying and permanent power of good (John 4:11-15). (vii.) On the last day of the feast Jesus stood in the Temple and cried, ‘If any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink. He that believeth in me, as the scripture saith, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living Mater’ (John 7:37 f.). The Evangelist interprets the symbol: ‘This spake he of the Spirit, which they which believed on him should receive: for the Holy Spirit was not yet given; because Jesus was not yet glorified’ (John 7:39). The accuracy of the interpretation has been doubted (Wendt, Teaching of Jesus, vol. i. p. 256 n.  ). (viii.) It is also used as a symbol of the smallest service: ‘Whosoever shall give unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you he shall in no wise lose his reward’ (Matthew 10:42 || Mark 9:41). It is possible to punctuate the sentence so that it reads ‘a cup of cold water only’ or ‘only in the name of a disciple.’ But the first is greatly to be preferred.

Baker's Evangelical Dictionary of Biblical Theology - Water
The word "water" is used in a variety of metaphorical ways in Scripture. It is used to symbolize the troublesome times in life that can and do come to human beings, especially God's children (Psalm 32:6 ; 69:1,2 , 14,15 ; Isaiah 43:2 ; Lamentations 3:54 ). In some contexts water stands for enemies who can attack and need to be overcome (2 Samuel 22:17-18 ; Psalm 18:16-17 ; 124:4-5 ; 144:7 ; Isaiah 8:7 ; Jeremiah 47:2 ). In both the Old and New Testaments, the word "water" is used for salvation and eternal life, which God offers humankind through faith in his Son (Isaiah 12:3 ; 55:1 ; Revelation 21:6 ; 22:1,2 , 17 ). In John 4:10-15 , part of Jesus' discourse with the Samaritan woman at the well, he speaks metaphorically of his salvation as "living water" and as "a spring of water welling up to eternal life."
Following along this same theme, water sometimes symbolizes the spiritual cleansing that comes with the acceptance of God's offer of salvation (Ezekiel 36:25 ; Ephesians 5:26 ; Hebrews 10:22 ). In fact, in Ephesians 5:26 , the "water" that does the cleansing of the bride, the church, is directly tied in with God's Word, of which it is a symbol.
In a very important passage, Jesus identifies the "streams of living water" that flow from within those who believe in him with the Holy Spirit (John 7:37-39 ). The reception of the Holy Spirit is clearly the special reception that was going to come after Jesus had been glorified at the Father's right hand and happened on the Day of Pentecost as described in Acts 2 . Two times in Jeremiah Yahweh is metaphorically identified as "the spring of living water" (Jeremiah 2:13 ; 17:13 ). In both instances Israel is rebuked for having forsaken the Lord for other cisterns that could in no way satisfy their "thirst."
In other passages of Scripture, the following are said metaphorically to be "water": God's help (Isaiah 8:6 : "the gently flowing waters of Shiloah" ); God's judgment (Isaiah 28:17 : "water will overflow your hiding place" ); man's words (Proverbs 18:4 : "The words of man's mouth are deep waters" ); man's purposes (Proverbs 20:5 : "The purposes of a man's heart are deep waters" ); an adulterous woman (Proverbs 9:17 : "Stolen water is sweet" ); and a person's posterity (Isaiah 48:1 : "Listen to this, O house of Jacob, who are called by the name of Israel and have come forth out of the line  of Judah" ).
The reference to "water" in John 3:5 has been variously interpreted by scholars. Some have taken the phrase, "being born of water, " to mean being born again by means of water baptism. Others have taken the verse to involve a hendiadys and take "water" and "Spirit" together as one reference since water is a symbol of the Holy Spirit in other passages. Still others take the birth by water to be one's natural birth and the birth by the Spirit to be the supernatural birth of being "born again" or regenerated. This seems to be what Nicodemus, in the context, understood Jesus to be saying. In order to enter the kingdom of God one must have two births, each a different kind. After all, water, in its ordinary sense, has a great part to play in the natural birth of a baby. Furthermore, there are too many clear passages and single verses in the Bible that base salvation, entrance into the kingdom of God, and eternal life on faith alone.

The Hawker's Poor Man's Concordance And Dictionary - Water
In the language of Scripture, this word hath numberless applications made of it, but in a peculiar manner is principally made use of in relation to the person, work, and offices of God the Holy Ghost. For as water is essentially necessary to animal life, so is the blessed Spirit to spiritual life. But it would form a subject in itself, and fill a volume, to shew how many and how various the ways by which the Holy Ghost is represented in the Bible under this sweet figure, as supplying the church with living water. Hence he is called the "water of life, a well of water springing up in the soul to everlasting life." And he is described as quickening the marshy ground; cleansing, refreshing, comforting, cooling, and strengthening the souls of his people, by the continued streams of his grace. "There is a river (said the Psalmist) the streams whereof do make glad the city of God..." (Psalms 46:4) It should not be overlooked or forgotten also, that each and all of the persons of the GODHEAD are so described in the word of God, and which by the way, let it be observed, becomes a decided proof of the unity of the GODHEAD, while it no less shews the distinction of person. Hence, God the Father is set forth by the prophet as a fountain. (Jeremiah 2:13) God the Son as a fountain. (Zechariah 13:1; Song of Song of Solomon 4:15) And God the Holy Ghost as a fountain, filling the hearts of the redeemed, and causing them to overflow in the day of Christ. (John 7:38)

Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types - Water
This type is sometimes presented as a river as in Psalm 1:3; Ezekiel 47:5; John 7:38. In these cases the water undoubtedly represents the Holy Spirit. It is plainly indicated. He is constantly working, blessing, enriching, and those who permit Him to be a living personal power in their lives do flourish for GOD, grow in grace, and bear much fruit. This type is sometimes presented as a fountain, as in John 4:14. Again, the Spirit of GOD is the one thus described. He does not stay dormant in the soul, but works up and out in the life, and produces evidences of His presence. Sometimes water is presented as a drink, as in John 7:37. This also represents the Holy Spirit, and we drink Him into our souls and lives, as the living Lord, who satisfies the cravings of the heart for the things of GOD. (See also1Co 12:13).
Proverbs 11:25 (a) In this wonderful passage the Lord is telling us plainly that if we will give blessings to others, they in turn will give blessings to us.
Isaiah 58:11 (a) The soul that is blessed by GOD, who walks with GOD, and loves the Word of GOD will be filled with joy and gladness, his life will be beautiful in character, and he will be a blessing to many. (See also Jeremiah 31:12).
Jeremiah 2:13 (b) Our Lord is the giver of the Holy Spirit who is the living Water. Those who turn away from GOD and refuse His life and His gifts find that the things in which they trust, and on which they lean, will fail them and they are left at the end of the journey with no peace, no eternal life, no hope, no joy, and only the outer dark.
1 Corinthians 3:0 (a) The work of ministering the Word of GOD to others has a two-fold aspect. The seed is the Word of GOD, and Paul planted it. No seed, however, will grow without water, no matter how good the seed, nor fertile the soil. Therefore, Apollos came ministering the Spirit of GOD to those who had heard the Word of GOD. The Holy Spirit is the water, and when He is present in power, recognized and trusted, then the seed of the Word of GOD grows and prospers in the hearts of the people.
Ephesians 5:26 (b) This type represents the cleansing effect of the Word of GOD on the habits and ways of the people of GOD. As the Christian studies the Scripture against temper, he will become sweet-spirited. As he reads the Scriptural warning against liquor and profanity, he will avoid it. In this way, evil ways are cleansed from a Christian's life.
Judges 1:12 (b) Water is typical of the refreshment and blessing that should characterize the ministry of one who claims to be the servant of GOD. In this Scripture the blessing is lacking, and the message is dry and unfruitful.

Hastings' Dictionary of the New Testament - Blood And Water
BLOOD AND WATER (John 19:31-37).—When the soldier, whom tradition names Longinus,* . Cf. ‘Aug.’ Manual. xxiii: ‘Longinus aperuit mihi latus Christi lancea, et ego intravi et ibi requiesco securus.’ The name is probably derived from λόγχη, ‘spear.’] to make sure that He was really dead, drove his spear into the side of Jesus on the cross (see Crucifixion), a strange thing happened. On being withdrawn the spear was followed by a gush of blood and water. It was a singular phenomenon. The Fathers regarded it as a miracle,†  but St. John does not venture on an opinion. He neither attempts to account for it nor pronounces it a miracle, but contents himself with solemnly asseverating that he had witnessed it, and could vouch for its actual occurrence. He felt the wonder of it to the last (cf. 1 John 5:6-8).
Medical science has confirmed his testimony, and furnished an explanation which at once defines the phenomenon as a perfectly natural occurrence, and reveals somewhat of the awfulness of our Lord’s Passion. During His dread and mysterious dereliction on the cross (see Dereliction) His heart swelled until it burst, and the blood was ‘effused into the distended sac of the pericardium, and afterwards separated, as is usual with extravasated blood, into these two parts, viz. (1) crassamentum or red clot, and (2) watery serum.’ When the distended sac was pierced from beneath, it discharged ‘its sanguineous contents in the form of red clots of blood and a stream of watery serum, exactly corresponding to the description given by the sacred narrative, “and forthwith came there out blood and water.” ’‡  Jesus died literally of a broken heart—of ‘agony of mind, producing rupture of the heart.’
It was a favourite idea with the Fathers that the Water and the Blood were symbolic of the Sacraments. St. Augustine, following the v.l. ἤνοιξε for ἔνυξε in v. 34, comments (in Joan Ev. Tract. cxx. § 2): ‘Vigilanti verbo Evangelista usus est, ut non diceret, Latus ejus percussit, aut vulneravit, aut quid alind; sed, aperuit: ut illis quodammodo vitae ostium panderetur, unde Sacramenta Ecclesiae manaverunt, sine quibus ad vitam quae vera vita est, non intratur.’ Cf. Chrysost. in Joan. lxxxiv: οὐχ ἁπλῶς οὐδὲ ὠς ἔτυχεν αὖται ἐξῆλθον αἱ πηγαὶ, άλλʼ ἑπειδὴ ἐξ ἀμφοτέρων ἠ ἐκκλησία συνέστηκε. καὶ ἴσασιν οἱ μυσταγωγούμενοι, διʼ ὕδατος μὲν ἀναγεννώμενοι διʼ αἵματος δὲ καὶ σαρκὸς τρεφόμενοι. ἀρχὴν λαμβἁνει τὰ μυστήρια, ἴνʼ ὅταν προσίῃς τῷ φρικτῷ ποτηρίῳ, ὠς ἀπʼ αὐτῆς πίνων τῆς πλευρᾶς οὔτω προσίῃς.

Vine's Expository Dictionary of OT Words - Water
Mayim (מַיִם, Strong's #4325), “water; flood.” This word has cognates in Ugaritic and old South Arabic. It occurs about 580 times and in every period of biblical Hebrew.
First, “water” is one of the original basic substances. This is its significance in Gen. 1:2 (the first occurrence of the word): “And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.” In Gen. 1:7 God separated the “waters” above and the “waters” below (cf. Exod. 20:4) the expanse of the heavens.
Second, the word represents that which is in a well, “water” to be drunk (Gen. 21:19). “Living water” is “water” that flows: “And Isaac’s servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of springing  water …” (Gen. 26:19). “Water” of oppression or affliction is so designated because it is drunk in prison: “Put this fellow in the prison, and feed him with bread of affliction and with water of affliction, until I come in peace” (1 Kings 22:27). Job 9:30 speaks of slush or snow water: “If I wash myself with snow water, and make my hands never so clean.…”
Third, mayim can represent liquid in general: “… For the Lord our God hath put us to silence, and given us water of gall to drink, because we have sinned against the Lord” (Jer. 8:14). The phrase, me raglayim (“water of one’s feet”) is urine: “Hath my master sent me to thy master, and to thee, to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men which sit on the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss  with you?” (2 Kings 18:27; cf. Isa. 25:10).
Fourth, in Israel’s cultus “water” was poured or sprinkled (no one was ever immersed into water), symbolizing purification. So Aaron and his sons were to be washed with “water” as a part of the rite consecrating them to the priesthood: “And Aaron and his sons thou shalt bring unto the door of the tabernacle of the congregation, and shalt wash them with water” (Exod. 29:4). Parts of the sacrificial animal were to be ritually cleansed with “water” during the sacrifice: “But his inwards and his legs shall he wash in water …” (Lev. 1:9). Israel’s rites sometimes include consecrated “water”: “And the priest shall take holy water in an earthen vessel; and of the dust that is in the floor of the tabernacle the priest shall take, and put it into the water” (Num. 5:17). “Bitter water” was used in Israel’s rituals, too: “And the priest shall set the woman before the Lord, and uncover the woman’s head, and put the offering of memorial in her hands, which is the jealousy offering: and the priest shall have in his hand the bitter water that causeth the curse” (Num. 5:18). It was “water” which when drunk brought a curse and caused bitterness (Num. 5:24).
Fifth, in proper names this word is used of springs, streams, or seas and/or the area in the immediate vicinity of such bodies of water: “Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood …” (Exod. 7:19).
Sixth, this word is used figuratively in many senses. Mayim symbolizes danger or distress: “He sent from above, he took me; he drew me out of many waters” (2 Sam. 22:17). Outbursting force is represented by mayim in 2 Sam. 5:20: “The Lord hath broken forth upon mine enemies before me, as the  of waters.” “Mighty waters” describes the onrush of the godless nations against God: “The nations shall rush like the rushing of many waters …” (Isa. 17:13). Thus the word is used to picture something impetuous, violent, and overwhelming: “Terrors take hold on him as waters, a tempest stealeth him away in the night” (Job 27:20). In other passages “water” is used to represent timidity: “… Wherefore the hearts of the people melted, and became as water” (Josh. 7:5). Related to this nuance is the connotation “transitory”: “… Because thou shalt forget thy misery, and remember it as waters that pass away” (Job 11:16). In Isa. 32:2 “water” represents that which is refreshing: “And a man shall be as a hiding place from the wind, and a covert from the tempest; as rivers of water in a dry place, as the shadow of a great rock in a weary land.” Rest and peace are figured by waters of rest, or quiet waters: “… He leadeth me beside the still waters” (Ps. 23:2). Similar ideas are involved when one’s wife’s charms are termed “water of life” or “water which enlivens”: “Drink waters out of thine own cistern, and running waters out of thine own well” (Prov. 5:15). Outpoured “water” represents bloodshed (Deut. 12:16), wrath (Hos. 5:10), justice (Amos 5:24; KJV, “judgment”), and strong feelings (Job 3:24).
Tehôm (תְּהֹם, Strong's #8415), “deep water; ocean; water table; waters; flood of waters.” Cognates of this word appear in Ugaritic, Akkadian (as early as Ebla, around 2400-2250 B.C.), and Arabic. The 36 occurrences of this word appear almost exclusively in poetical passages but in all historical periods.
The word represents the “deep water” whose surface freezes when cold: “The waters are hid as with a stone, and the face of the deep is frozen” (Job 38:30). In Ps. 135:6 tehôm is used of the “ocean” in contrast to the seas: “Whatsoever the Lord pleased, that did he in heaven, and in earth, in the seas, and all deep places ” (cf. Ps. 148:7 et al.).
The word has special reference to the deep floods or sources of water. Sailors in the midst of a violent storm “mount up to the heaven, they go down again to the depths” (Ps. 107:26). This is hyperbolic or exaggerated poetical talk, but it presents the “depths” as the opposite of the heavens or skies. This emphasis is especially prominent in the Song of Moses, where the word represents the ever-existing (but not eternal), ever-threatening, and perilous “deep,” not simply an element of nature but a dangerous element: “The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone” (Exod. 15:5). On the other hand, in such contexts tehôm may mean no more than “deep water” into which heavy objects quickly sink.
Tehôm can represent an inexhaustible source of water or, by way of poetic comparison, of blessing: “… With blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under …” (Gen. 49:25). In such contexts the word represents the “water table” always available below the surface of the earth—what was tapped by digging wells, out of which flowed springs, and what was one with the waters beneath the surface of oceans, lakes, seas, and rivers. This was what God opened together with the waters above the expanse (Gen. 7:11; cf. 1:7) and what later was closed to cause and terminate the great Flood (Gen. 8:2; cf. Ps. 33:6; 104:6; Ezek. 26:19). In such contexts the word represents a “flood of waters” (Ps. 33:6).
In Gen. 1:2 (the first occurrence of the word) tehôm is used of “all waters” which initially covered the surface of the entire earth: “… And darkness was upon the face of the deepw (cf. Prov. 3:20; 8:24, 27-28).

Watson's Biblical & Theological Dictionary - Water
In the sacred Scriptures, bread and water are commonly mentioned as the chief supports of human life; and to provide a sufficient quantity of water, to prepare it for use, and to deal it out to the thirsty, are among the principal cares of an oriental householder, The Moabites and Ammonites are reproached for not meeting the Israelites with bread and water; that is, with proper refreshments, Deuteronomy 33:4 . Nabal says in an insulting manner to David's messengers, "Shall I then take my bread and my water, and my flesh that I have killed for my shearers, and give it unto men whom I know not whence they be?" 1 Samuel 25:11 . To furnish travellers with water is, even in present times, reckoned of so great importance, that many of the eastern philanthropists have been at considerable expense to procure them that enjoyment. The nature of the climate, and the general aspect of the oriental regions, require numerous fountains to excite and sustain the languid powers of vegetation; and the sun, burning with intense heat in a cloudless sky, demands for the fainting inhabitants the verdure, shade, and coolness which vegetation produces. Hence fountains of living water are met with in the towns and villages, in the fields and gardens, and by the sides of the roads and of the beaten tracks on the mountains; and a cup of cold water from these wells is no contemptible present. "Fatigued with heat and thirst," says Carne, "we came to a few cottages in a palm wood, and stopped to drink of a fountain of delicious water. In this northern climate no idea can be formed of the luxury of drinking in Egypt: little appetite for food is felt; but when, after crossing the burning sands, you reach the rich line of woods on the brink of the Nile, and pluck the fresh limes, and mixing their juice with Egyptian sugar and the soft river water, drink repeated bowls of lemonade, you feel that every other pleasure of the senses must yield to this. One then perceives the beauty and force of those similes in Scripture, where the sweetest emotions of the heart are compared to the assuaging of thirst in a thirsty land." In Arabia, equal attention is paid, by the wealthy and benevolent, to the refreshment of the traveller. On one of the mountains of Arabia, Niebuhr found three little reservoirs, which are always kept full of fine water for the use of passengers. These reservoirs, which are about two feet and a half square, and from five to seven feet high, are round, or pointed at the top, of mason's work, having only a small opening in one of the sides, by which they pour water into them. Sometimes he found, near these places of Arab refreshment, a piece of a ground shell, or a little scoop of wood, for lifting the water. The same attention to the comfort of travellers is manifested in Egypt, where public buildings are set apart in some of their cities, the business of whose inhabitants is to supply the passengers with water free of expense. Some of these houses make a very handsome appearance; and the persons appointed to wait on the passengers are required to have some vessels of copper, curiously tinned and filled with water, always ready on the window next the street. Some of the Mohammedan villages in Palestine, not far from Nazareth, brought Mr. Buckingham and his party bread and water, while on horseback, without even being solicited to do so; and when they halted to accept it, both compliments and blessings were mutually interchanged, "Here, as in every other part of Nubia," says Burckhardt, "the thirsty traveller finds, at short distances, water jars placed by the road side under a low roof. Every village pays a small monthly stipend to some person to fill these jars in the morning, and again toward evening. The same custom prevails in Upper Egypt, but on a larger scale: and there are caravanserais often found near the wells which supply travellers with water." In India the Hindoos go sometimes a great way to fetch water, and then boil it, that it may not be hurtful to travellers that are hot; and after this stand from morning till night in some great road, where there is neither pit nor rivulet, and offer it in honour of their gods, to be drunk by the passengers. This necessary work of charity in these hot countries seems to have been practised among the more pious and humane Jews; and our Lord assures them, that if they do this in his name, they shall not lose their reward. Hence a cup of water is a present in the east of great value, though there are some other refreshments of a superior quality. It is still the proper business of the females to supply the family with water. From this drudgery, however, the married women are exempted, unless when single women are wanting. The proper time for drawing water in those burning climates is in the morning, or when the sun is going down; then they go forth to perform that humble office adorned with their trinkets, some of which are often of great value. Agreeably to this custom Rebecca went instead of her mother to fetch water from the well, and the servant of Abraham expected to meet an unmarried female there who might prove a suitable match for his master's son. In the East Indies, the women also draw water at the public wells, as Rebecca did, on that occasion, for travellers, their servants and their cattle; and women of no mean rank literally illustrate the conduct of an unfortunate princess in the Jewish history, by performing the services of a menial, 2 Samuel 13:8 . The young women of Guzerat daily draw water from the wells, and carry the jars upon the head; but those of high rank carry them upon the shoulder. In the same way Rebecca carried her pitcher; and probably for the same reason, because she was the daughter of an eastern prince, Genesis 24:45 .
Water sometimes signifies the element of water, Genesis 1:10 ; and metaphorically, trouble and afflictions, Psalms 69:1 . In the language of the prophets, waters often denote a great multitude of people, Isaiah 8:7 ; Revelation 17:15 . Water is put for children or posterity, Numbers 24:7 ; Isaiah 48:1 ; for the clouds, Psalms 104:3 . Waters sometimes stand for tears, Jeremiah 9:1 ; Jeremiah 9:7 ; for the ordinances of the Gospel, Isaiah 12:3 ; Isaiah 35:6-7 ; Isaiah 55:1 ; John 7:37-38 . "Stolen waters," denote unlawful pleasures with strange women, Proverbs 9:17 . The Israelites are reproached with having forsaken the fountain of living water, to quench their thirst at broken cisterns, Jeremiah 2:13 ; that is, with having quitted the worship of God for the worship of false and ridiculous deities. Waters of Meribah, or the waters of strife, were so called because of the quarrelling or contention and murmuring of the Israelites against Moses and against God. When they came to Kadesh, and there happened to be in want of water, they made a sedition against him and his brother Aaron, Numbers 20:1 , &c. Upon this occasion Moses committed that great sin with which God was so much displeased, that he deprived him of the honour of introducing his people into the land of promise.

1910 New Catholic Dictionary - Water, Holy
A sacramental blessed by a priest to invoke God's blessing on those who use it. There are four kinds: ordinary holy water, blessed by the priest for the sprinkling of the people before Mass (see ASPERGEs), for use at the door of the church, and for the blessing of persons and things in the church and at horne, sometimes used with salt, as a symbol of wisdom and of preservation from corruption; Baptismal water, in which the oil of catechumens and the holy chrism are mingled, used only in the administration of Baptism; water of consecration, or Gregorian water, and Easter water. As used in nearly all the blessings of the Church's ritual, it is usually contained in a bowl-shaped vessel having a swinging handle and provided with a sprinkler. At the church door it is kept in a fixed vessel called a font, so that the people may use it conveniently when entering or leaving. There is an indulgence of 100 days for using it. Water is the natural element for cleansing; and symbolically it denotes interior purification. It has been used in many religions. The laws of Moses enjoined the sprinkling of the people, the sacrifices, etc. In the Christian Church its use goes back probably to the 2century. Holy water is usually blessed just before the principal Mass on Sunday, but may be blessed at any other time. The priest reads several prayers, including an exorcism of the salt and the water, and puts the salt into the water in the form of a threefold cross, in the name of the three Persons of the Blessed Trinity. He then asks God's blessing on it.
American Tract Society Bible Dictionary - Water-Spouts
Are well-known phenomena in the Levant , and are supposed to be produced by whirlwinds. A dense, black, funnel-shaped cloud is seen depending from the sky, and sometimes moving rapidly over the sea, from which at times a similar cone ascends to meet the upper one. Where they unite, the column may be three or four feet thick; and when they break, torrents of water descend. The word occurs in Psalm 42:7 , where, however, the psalmist probably alludes to cataracts of water.

In Isaiah 35:7 , the Hebrew word for "parched ground" that shall become a pool of water, is the same with the Arabic term for the mirage, a peculiar optical illusion by which travelers in hot and dry deserts think they see broad lakes and flowing waters; they seem to discern the very ripple of the waves, and the swaying of tail trees on the margin in the cool breeze; green hills and houses and city ramparts rise before the astonished sight, recede as the traveler advances, and at length melt away in the hot haze. Not so the blessings of the gospel; they are no alluring mockery, but real waters of everlasting life, Isaiah 55:1John 4:14Revelation 22:1 . Compare Isaiah 29:8Jeremiah 15:18 .
King James Dictionary - Water
WATER, n. Wauter. G., Gr.
1. A fluid, the most abundant and most necessary for living beings of any in nature, except air. Water when pure, is colorless, destitute of taste and smell, ponderous, transparent, and in a very small degree compressible. It is reposited in the earth in inexhaustible quantities, where it is preserved fresh and cool, and from which it issues in springs, which form streams and rivers. But the great reservoirs of water on the globe are the ocean, seas and lakes, which cover more than three fifths of its surface, and from which it is raised by evaporation, and uniting with the air in the state of vapor, is wafted over the earth, ready to be precipitated in the form of rain, snow or hail. Water by the abstraction or loss of heat becomes solid, or in other words, is converted into ice or snow and by heat it is converted into steam, an elastic vapor, one of the most powerful agents in nature. Modern chemical experiments prove that water is a compound substance, consisting of a combination of oxygen and hydrogen gases, or rather the bases or ponderable matter of those gases or about two volumes or measures of hydrogen gas and one of oxygen gas. The proportion of the ingredients in weight, is nearly 85 parts of oxygen to 15 of hydrogen.
2. The ocean a sea a lake a river any great collection of water as in the phrases, to go by water, to travel by water. 3. Urine the animal liquor secreted by the kidneys and discharged from the bladder. 4. The color or luster of a diamond or pearl, sometimes perhaps of other precious stones as a diamond of the first water, that is, perfectly pure and transparent. Hence the figurative phrase, a man or a genius of the first water, that is, of the first excellence. 5. Water is a name given to several liquid substances or humors in animal bodies as the water of the pericardium, of dropsy, &c. Mineral waters, are those waters which are so impregnated with foreign ingredients, such as gaseous, sulphurous and saline substances, as to give them medicinal, or at least sensible properties. Most natural waters contain more or less of these foreign substances, but the proportion is generally too minute to affect the senses.
To hold water, to be sound or tight. Obsolete or vulgar.
Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - WaterWatering, Waterless
A — 1: ὕδωρ (Strong's #5204 — Noun Neuter — hudor — ) whence Eng. prefix, "hydro-," is used (a) of the natural element, frequently in the Gospels; in the plural especially in the Apocalypse; elsewhere, e.g., Hebrews 9:19 ; James 3:12 ; in 1 John 5:6 , that Christ "came by water and blood," may refer either (1) to the elements that flowed from His side on the Cross after His Death, or, in view of the order of the words and the prepositions here used, (2) to His baptism in Jordan and His Death on the Cross. As to (1), the "water" would symbolize the moral and practical cleansing effected by the removal of defilement by our taking heed to the Word of God in heart, life and habit; cp. Leviticus 14 , as to the cleansing of the leper. As to (2), Jesus the Son of God came on His mission by, or through, "water" and blood, namely, at His baptism, when He publicly entered upon His mission and was declared to be the Son of God by the witness of the Father, and at the Cross, when He publicly closed His witness; the Apostle's statement thus counteracts the doctrine of the Gnostics that the Divine Logos united Himself with the Man Jesus at His baptism, and left him at Gethsemane. On the contrary, He who was baptized and He who was crucified was the Son of God throughout in His combined Deity and humanity.
The word "water" is used symbolically in John 3:5 , either (1) of the Word of God, as in 1 Peter 1:23 (cp. the symbolic use in Ephesians 5:26 ), or, in view of the preposition ek, "out of," (2) of the truth conveyed by baptism, this being the expression, not the medium, the symbol, not the cause, of the believer's identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. So the New Birth is, in one sense, the setting aside of all that the believer was according to the flesh, for it is evident that there must be an entirely new beginning. Some regard the kai, "and," in John 3:5 , as epexegetic, == "even," in which case the "water" would be emblematic of the Spirit, as in John 7:38 (cp.

The American Church Dictionary and Cycopedia - Water
In the Church Catechism it is declared that the outwardvisible sign or form in Baptism is, "Water; wherein the person isbaptized. In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of theHoly Ghost." By the rubric in the Office for Holy Baptism it isdirected that the Font is to be filled with "pure water." It isthus the Church fulfils our Lord's command, following literallyHis words, "baptizing them with water." Water, therefore, is theessential element of Holy Baptism, just as the bread and wine arethe elements in the Holy Communion. Water as used in HolyBaptism signifies "cleansing," The amount of water to be used theChurch has always regarded as matter of indifference.

The limestone formation, with its many caves, made easy the construction of cisterns and reservoirs to collect the rain Water: thence supplies were drawn as required during the dry months.

To this time also belong many ruins of massive aqueducts, leading Water to the cities from distant sources. Every considerable house has a cistern for rain Water from roof and adjoining areas. Importance is attached to plunging in the buckets by which the Water is drawn up, this preventing stagnation. The springs, and cisterns made in the open country, are the property of the local family or tribe, from whom Water, if required in any quantity, must be bought. Drawing of Water for domestic purposes is almost exclusively the work of women ( Genesis 24:11 , John 4:7 etc. In crossing the desert, Water is carried in ‘bottles’ of skin ( Genesis 21:14 ). ‘flowing’ Water of the spring is greatly preferred to the ‘dead’ Water of the cistern, and it stands frequently for the vitalizing Influences of God’s grace ( Jeremiah 2:13 , Zechariah 14:3 , John 4:10 etc. Many Scripture references show how the cool, refreshing, fertilizing qualities of Water are prized in a thirsty land ( Proverbs 25:26 , Isaiah 44:14 , Jeremiah 17:8 , Luke 16:24 etc. Water is furnished to wash the feet and hands of a guest ( Luke 7:44 ).

Water - The Bible speaks of Water in three different ways: as a material resource, as a symbol, and as a metaphor. ...
A Material Necessity which God Provides Water as a material resource is necessary for life. The Bible states that God made Water a part of His good creation and that He exercises sovereignty over it (Genesis 1-2 ; Isaiah 40:12 ). He controls the natural processes of precipitation and evaporation, as well as the courses of bodies of Water (Job 5:10 ; Job 36:27 ; Job 37:10 ; Ezekiel 47:1-126 ; Psalm 107:33 ; Proverbs 8:29 ). God normally assures the provision of Water for human needs (Deuteronomy 11:14 ). However, Water is sometimes used in punishment for sin, as with the flood of Noah's day (Genesis 6:17 ) or the drought proclaimed by Elijah (1 Kings 17:1 ). The divine control of Water teaches people obedience to and dependency upon God. ...
Many of the great acts of God in history have involved Water, such as the parting of the sea (Exodus 14:21 ), the provision of Water for the Israelites in the wilderness (Exodus 15:25 ; Exodus 17:6 ), and the crossing of the Jordan River (Joshua 3:14-17 ). Water was also involved in several of Jesus' miracles (Matthew 14:25 ; Luke 8:24-25 ; John 2:1-11 ). ...
Water was a crucial element in God's gift of the Promised Land to Israel (Deuteronomy 8:7 ). Palestine contains several natural sources of Water: rain, springs, wells, and a few short, perennial streams. The dry months of May to October made necessary the use of cisterns and pools for Water storage. ...
A Theological Symbol and Metaphor The Old Testament contains laws for the use of Water in rituals as a symbol of purification. The Book of Genesis uses Water as a symbol of instability before the completion of creation (Genesis 1:2 ), and Ezekiel spoke of Water as a symbol of renewal in the age to come (1618386159_8 ). ...
The Bible contains dozens of metaphorical usages of Water. For example, in the Old Testament Water is a metaphor or simile for fear (Joshua 7:5 ), death (2 Samuel 14:14 ), sin (Job 15:16 ), God's presence (Psalm 72:6 ), marital fidelity (Proverbs 5:15-16 ), the knowledge of God (Isaiah 11:9 ), salvation (Psalm 33:74 ), the Spirit (Isaiah 44:3-4 ), God's blessings (Isaiah 58:11 ), God's voice (Ezekiel 43:2 ), God's wrath (Hosea 5:10 ), and justice (Amos 5:24 ). Among the metaphorical uses of Water in the New Testament are references to birth (John 3:5 ), the Spirit (John 4:10 ), spiritual training (1 Corinthians 3:6 ), and life (Revelation 7:17 )

Water - Water, n. Water when pure, is colorless, destitute of taste and smell, ponderous, transparent, and in a very small degree compressible. But the great reservoirs of Water on the globe are the ocean, seas and lakes, which cover more than three fifths of its surface, and from which it is raised by evaporation, and uniting with the air in the state of vapor, is wafted over the earth, ready to be precipitated in the form of rain, snow or hail. Water by the abstraction or loss of heat becomes solid, or in other words, is converted into ice or snow and by heat it is converted into steam, an elastic vapor, one of the most powerful agents in nature. Modern chemical experiments prove that Water is a compound substance, consisting of a combination of oxygen and hydrogen gases, or rather the bases or ponderable matter of those gases or about two volumes or measures of hydrogen gas and one of oxygen gas. The ocean a sea a lake a river any great collection of Water as in the phrases, to go by Water, to travel by Water.

In both the Old and New Testaments, the word "water" is used for salvation and eternal life, which God offers humankind through faith in his Son (Isaiah 12:3 ; 55:1 ; Revelation 21:6 ; 22:1,2 , 17 ). In John 4:10-15 , part of Jesus' discourse with the Samaritan woman at the well, he speaks metaphorically of his salvation as "living Water" and as "a spring of Water welling up to eternal life. "...
Following along this same theme, Water sometimes symbolizes the spiritual cleansing that comes with the acceptance of God's offer of salvation (Ezekiel 36:25 ; Ephesians 5:26 ; Hebrews 10:22 ). In fact, in Ephesians 5:26 , the "water" that does the cleansing of the bride, the church, is directly tied in with God's Word, of which it is a symbol. ...
In a very important passage, Jesus identifies the "streams of living Water" that flow from within those who believe in him with the Holy Spirit (John 7:37-39 ). Two times in Jeremiah Yahweh is metaphorically identified as "the spring of living Water" (Jeremiah 2:13 ; 17:13 ). "...
In other passages of Scripture, the following are said metaphorically to be "water": God's help (Isaiah 8:6 : "the gently flowing Waters of Shiloah" ); God's judgment (Isaiah 28:17 : "water will overflow your hiding place" ); man's words (Proverbs 18:4 : "The words of man's mouth are deep Waters" ); man's purposes (Proverbs 20:5 : "The purposes of a man's heart are deep Waters" ); an adulterous woman (Proverbs 9:17 : "Stolen Water is sweet" ); and a person's posterity (Isaiah 48:1 : "Listen to this, O house of Jacob, who are called by the name of Israel and have come forth out of the line  of Judah" ). ...
The reference to "water" in John 3:5 has been variously interpreted by scholars. Some have taken the phrase, "being born of Water, " to mean being born again by means of Water baptism. Others have taken the verse to involve a hendiadys and take "water" and "Spirit" together as one reference since Water is a symbol of the Holy Spirit in other passages. Still others take the birth by Water to be one's natural birth and the birth by the Spirit to be the supernatural birth of being "born again" or regenerated. After all, Water, in its ordinary sense, has a great part to play in the natural birth of a baby

Gihon - ” The primary Water supply for Jerusalem and one of the four rivers into which the river of Eden divided (Genesis 2:13 ). ...
During the Old Testament period the spring of Gihon was the primary Water supply for the city of Jerusalem. Water issues from a crack sixteen feet long in the rock. At some point in the ancient past a wall was built at the eastern end of the crack, diverting Water into a cave at the other end. Water jugs were let down into the pool through another vertical shaft. During the early Israelite occupation, Water was collected outside the city walls in an open basin called the “upper pool” (Isaiah 7:3 ). An open aqueduct carried Water from there to the “old pool” at the southern end of the city (Isaiah 22:11 ; cf. Before Sennacherib's arrival, Hezekiah plugged the aqueduct and dug his famous Water tunnel (2 Kings 20:20 ; 2 Chronicles 32:30 ). See Eden ; Hezekiah ; Jerusalem ; Kidron Valley ; Siloam ; Water
Aqueducts - were troughs cut out of rock or soil or pipes made of stone, leather, or bronze that were used from very early times in the Middle East to transport Water from distant places into towns and cities. These troughs carried Water from hillsides to the valleys below. Jerusalem was served by a system of aqueducts which brought mountain spring Water first to collecting reservoirs outside the city, and then into the city itself. Hezekiah's tunnel, the Siloam tunnel, was a twisting underground aqueduct that diverted Water from the Gihon Spring to the Pool of Siloam (2 Kings 20:20 ). At Masada, two small wadis were dammed up and the Water diverted by open channel to rock-cut cisterns in the mound. ) brought Water into Nineveh from the river Gomel. Ancient aqueducts, the non-pressure type, carried Water downhill by means of gravity. Although most conduits were beneath the ground, lowlands were crossed on high, arched structures, each containing a built-in slope so that Water flow was not impeded. Sometimes these elevated sections, while also carrying several channels of Water, served as footbridges

Water (2) - WATER (ὕδωρ). —For an Eastern country, Palestine (except in the Negeb and the districts which are desert) has a fairly abundant supply of Water. In Galilee the Water supply is much greater than in Judaea. The storage of Water is much more imperfect than in former times. The chief Waters which are referred to in the Gospels are those of the Sea of Galilee and the river Jordan. ...
Water is frequently mentioned in the Gospels (most instances are found in Jn. ‘Jesus went up straightway out of the Water’ (Matthew 3:16 || Mark 1:10); ‘Send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in Water’ (Luke 16:24); ‘John was baptizing in aenon, near to Salim, because there was much Water there’ (John 5:1-7). The Water of the pool of Bethesda (John 3:23) was supposed to have curative powers. 3 (‘waiting for the moving of the Waters’) and the whole of v. The moving of the Water was a natural phenomenon, the flow of the spring being intermittent. The disciples who were sent to prepare for the observance of the Passover were instructed to look for ‘a man bearing a pitcher of Water’ (Mark 14:13 || Luke 22:10). As Water is usually carried by women in the East, the man bearing the pitcher would easily be distinguished. In John 19:34 it is recorded that at the crucifixion of Jesus one of the soldiers pierced His side with a spear, and forthwith there came out blood and Water; see art. Blood and Water. The figurative use of Water in the Gospels is varied. ) of the moral cleansing of life in repentance, ‘I baptize you with Water unto repentance’ (Matthew 3:11,Mark 1:8,Luke 3:16,John 1:23-26); (ii. ) its symbolical reference in connexion with the new birth is admitted, but its significance is uncertain, ‘Except a man be born of Water and spirit (ἐξ ὕδατος καὶ πνεύματος), he cannot enter into the kingdom of God’ (John 3:5). The phrase ‘water and spirit’ has been regarded as an instance of hendiadys, and interpreted as ‘spiritual Water’ (Neil, Figurative Language in the Bible). ) Water is also used as a symbol of innocence: ‘Pilate took Water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person’ (Matthew 27:24). Jesus said to Simon the Pharisee, ‘I entered into thy house, thou gavest me no Water for my feet’ (Luke 7:44). ) At the supper in the upper room (John 13:1-7) the Water for the feet had not been provided. After that, he poureth Water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet’ (John 13:4-5). ) In His conversation with the woman of Samaria, Jesus linked the Water which she sought at the well with the living Water which He alone could give. ) It is also used as a symbol of the smallest service: ‘Whosoever shall give unto one of these little ones a cup of cold Water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you he shall in no wise lose his reward’ (Matthew 10:42 || Mark 9:41). It is possible to punctuate the sentence so that it reads ‘a cup of cold Water only’ or ‘only in the name of a disciple. ‘Water’ in Hasting's Dictionary of the Bible ; Thomson, LB Conduit - A Water-course or channel (Job 38:25 ). The "conduit of the upper pool" (Isaiah 7:3 ) was formed by Hezekiah for the purpose of conveying the Waters from the upper pool in the valley of Gihon to the west side of the city of David (2 Kings 18:17 ; 20:20 ; 2 Chronicles 32:30 ). In carrying out this work he stopped "the Waters of the fountains which were without the city" i. , "the upper Water-course of Gihon", and conveyed it down from the west through a canal into the city, so that in case of a siege the inhabitants of the city might have a supply of Water, which would thus be withdrawn from the enemy. ) There are also the remains of a conduit which conducted Water from the so-called "Pools of Solomon," beyond Bethlehem, into the city. Water is still conveyed into the city from the fountains which supplied these pools by a channel which crosses the valley of Hinnom

Irrigation - Transportation of Water by man-made means such as canals, dams, aqueducts, and cisterns. Old Testament The dry climate of the Ancient Near East made the transportation of Water, often across long distances, a necessity. Large canal systems crossed the lands of Egypt and Mesopotamia, providing the vast amounts of Water necessary to support crops during the dry months of March to October. In Egypt, the second highest official, the vizier, oversaw the maintenance of canals and the allocation of Water to the provinces. Water was drawn from the Nile River and offshoot irrigation canals by means of a hinged pole with a hanging bucket on the end. During the Exile of Judah in Babylon, canals as large as twenty-five yards wide and several miles long carried the Waters of the Tigris and Euphrates to field and city. Commercial ships used these Waterways to transport produce between outlying farms and major cities. Instead, farmers relied upon the winter rains to provide all the Water necessary for crops during the coming year. Fields and gardens close to Water sources may have used small irrigation channels, and some fields may have been Watered by hand in particularly dry years. Runoff from the rains was collected and diverted through conduits to both communal and private cisterns for drinking Water. In larger cities such as Gezer, Megiddo, Hazor, and Jerusalem engineers and workmen produced huge underground tunnel systems to provide the citizens with ample supplies of Water. ...
New Testament During Intertestamental and New Testament times massive Roman aqueducts were built to provide fresh Water for the growing cities. Water for Jerusalem was carried northward through an elaborate series of canals and pools from the Bethlehem area

Water - In the sacred Scriptures, bread and Water are commonly mentioned as the chief supports of human life; and to provide a sufficient quantity of Water, to prepare it for use, and to deal it out to the thirsty, are among the principal cares of an oriental householder, The Moabites and Ammonites are reproached for not meeting the Israelites with bread and Water; that is, with proper refreshments, Deuteronomy 33:4 . Nabal says in an insulting manner to David's messengers, "Shall I then take my bread and my Water, and my flesh that I have killed for my shearers, and give it unto men whom I know not whence they be?" 1 Samuel 25:11 . To furnish travellers with Water is, even in present times, reckoned of so great importance, that many of the eastern philanthropists have been at considerable expense to procure them that enjoyment. Hence fountains of living Water are met with in the towns and villages, in the fields and gardens, and by the sides of the roads and of the beaten tracks on the mountains; and a cup of cold Water from these wells is no contemptible present. "Fatigued with heat and thirst," says Carne, "we came to a few cottages in a palm wood, and stopped to drink of a fountain of delicious Water. In this northern climate no idea can be formed of the luxury of drinking in Egypt: little appetite for food is felt; but when, after crossing the burning sands, you reach the rich line of woods on the brink of the Nile, and pluck the fresh limes, and mixing their juice with Egyptian sugar and the soft river Water, drink repeated bowls of lemonade, you feel that every other pleasure of the senses must yield to this. On one of the mountains of Arabia, Niebuhr found three little reservoirs, which are always kept full of fine Water for the use of passengers. These reservoirs, which are about two feet and a half square, and from five to seven feet high, are round, or pointed at the top, of mason's work, having only a small opening in one of the sides, by which they pour Water into them. Sometimes he found, near these places of Arab refreshment, a piece of a ground shell, or a little scoop of wood, for lifting the Water. The same attention to the comfort of travellers is manifested in Egypt, where public buildings are set apart in some of their cities, the business of whose inhabitants is to supply the passengers with Water free of expense. Some of these houses make a very handsome appearance; and the persons appointed to wait on the passengers are required to have some vessels of copper, curiously tinned and filled with Water, always ready on the window next the street. Buckingham and his party bread and Water, while on horseback, without even being solicited to do so; and when they halted to accept it, both compliments and blessings were mutually interchanged, "Here, as in every other part of Nubia," says Burckhardt, "the thirsty traveller finds, at short distances, Water jars placed by the road side under a low roof. The same custom prevails in Upper Egypt, but on a larger scale: and there are caravanserais often found near the wells which supply travellers with Water. " In India the Hindoos go sometimes a great way to fetch Water, and then boil it, that it may not be hurtful to travellers that are hot; and after this stand from morning till night in some great road, where there is neither pit nor rivulet, and offer it in honour of their gods, to be drunk by the passengers. Hence a cup of Water is a present in the east of great value, though there are some other refreshments of a superior quality. It is still the proper business of the females to supply the family with Water. The proper time for drawing Water in those burning climates is in the morning, or when the sun is going down; then they go forth to perform that humble office adorned with their trinkets, some of which are often of great value. Agreeably to this custom Rebecca went instead of her mother to fetch Water from the well, and the servant of Abraham expected to meet an unmarried female there who might prove a suitable match for his master's son. In the East Indies, the women also draw Water at the public wells, as Rebecca did, on that occasion, for travellers, their servants and their cattle; and women of no mean rank literally illustrate the conduct of an unfortunate princess in the Jewish history, by performing the services of a menial, 2 Samuel 13:8 . The young women of Guzerat daily draw Water from the wells, and carry the jars upon the head; but those of high rank carry them upon the shoulder. ...
Water sometimes signifies the element of Water, Genesis 1:10 ; and metaphorically, trouble and afflictions, Psalms 69:1 . In the language of the prophets, Waters often denote a great multitude of people, Isaiah 8:7 ; Revelation 17:15 . Water is put for children or posterity, Numbers 24:7 ; Isaiah 48:1 ; for the clouds, Psalms 104:3 . Waters sometimes stand for tears, Jeremiah 9:1 ; Jeremiah 9:7 ; for the ordinances of the Gospel, Isaiah 12:3 ; Isaiah 35:6-7 ; Isaiah 55:1 ; John 7:37-38 . "Stolen Waters," denote unlawful pleasures with strange women, Proverbs 9:17 . The Israelites are reproached with having forsaken the fountain of living Water, to quench their thirst at broken cisterns, Jeremiah 2:13 ; that is, with having quitted the worship of God for the worship of false and ridiculous deities. Waters of Meribah, or the Waters of strife, were so called because of the quarrelling or contention and murmuring of the Israelites against Moses and against God. When they came to Kadesh, and there happened to be in want of Water, they made a sedition against him and his brother Aaron, Numbers 20:1 , &c
Cistern - The innumerable cisterns, wells, and pools that exist in Palestine are evidence of the efforts of ancient people to supplement the natural Water supply. The cistern of Palestine was usually a bottle or pear-shaped reservoir into which Water could drain from a roof, tunnel, or courtyard. The porous limestone out of which the cisterns were dug allowed much of the Water put into the cistern to escape. cisterns began to be plastered, which resulted in a more efficient system of Water storage. ...
The biblical writers revealed that cisterns were used for purposes other than holding Water. In Jeremiah 14:1 , the pagan gods were symbolized as broken cisterns that could not hold Water. See Waterworks; Wells

Bitter Water - The Water drunk by a woman suspected of adultery (Numbers 5:11-31 ). The woman held the offering, and the priest held the vessel containing the bitter Water. The bitter Water was a combination of holy Water and dust from the sanctuary floor. At this point the woman took an oath: if she was innocent, the Water would not harm her; if she was guilty, then her “thigh would rot” and her “body swell. ” The priest wrote the curse (Numbers 5:21-22 ) on a parchment and washed the ink off the page into the Water. The priest then took the offering and burned it upon the altar, after which the woman drank the bitter Water

Elim - One of the stations in the wanderings of the children of Israel ( Exodus 15:27 , Numbers 33:9 ); apparently the fourth station after the passage of the Red Sea, and the first place where the Israelites met with fresh Water. Sinai be correct, the likeliest place for Elim is the Wady Gharandel , where there is a good deal of vegetation, especially stunted palms, and a number of Water-holes in the sand; but some travellers have pushed the site of Elim farther on, and placed it almost a day’s journey nearer to Sinai, in the Wady Tayibeh , where there are again palm trees and a scanty supply of brackish Water
Affusion - The pouring (which the word means) of Water on therecipient of Baptism, when the Baptism is not by immersion. Theoriginal mode was undoubtedly by the descent of the person to bebaptized into a stream or pool of Water. The method is amatter of indifference, the essential point being that the candidatefor Baptism come into actual contact with Water while the words, "Ibaptize thee in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of theHoly Ghost," are spoken
Water - (ὕδωρ)...
In the NT, after the Gospels, Water is nearly always used in a figurative or symbolical sense. Water was the element in which John baptized his penitents, and the best that he had; but he was profoundly conscious of its inadequacy, and eagerly expectant of an altogether different kind of baptism, to be introduced by the Messiah. When Christ confirms His forerunner’s distinction between baptism in Water and baptism in the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:5), He certainly regards the latter not as a blast of judgment but as the supreme gift of Divine grace; and Peter, who ‘remembered the word of the Lord,’ and no doubt the tone in which He uttered it, quotes it not as a menace but as an evangelical promise (Acts 11:16). Water is referred to in connexion with the baptism of the eunuch (Acts 8:36; Acts 8:38-39) and of Cornelius (Acts 10:47). In the latter case the baptism in Water is the immediate sequel to the earliest baptism of the Gentiles with the Holy Spirit, which was attended with the rapturous utterances known as glossolalia. In Ephesians 5:26 the Church is said to be cleansed by the washing (or laver, τῷ λουτρῷ) of Water with the word, baptism being regarded as the seal and symbol of a spiritual experience which is mediated by faith in the gospel. The writer of Hebrews (Hebrews 9:19) says that Water was used along with blood-either to prevent coagulation or as a symbol of purity-at the institution of the ancient covenant, a detail which is not mentioned in Exodus 24:3 ff. It is a striking fact that in his review of the Levitical ordinances this writer never quotes the LXX phrase ὕδωρ ῥαντισμοῦ, ‘water of sprinkling,’ which occurs four times in Numbers 19, but coins in its place the phrase αἷμα ῥαντισμοῦ, ‘blood of sprinkling’ (Hebrews 12:24). It is his conviction that, while the blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of a heifer (according to a Scripture which he does not question) cleanse the flesh (Hebrews 9:13), and while Water purifies the body (Hebrews 10:22), only the blood of Christ can sprinkle the heart from an evil conscience (Hebrews 9:14,Hebrews 10:22).  179) thinks, suggest that the Water of baptism has cleansing virtue because ‘sacramentally impregnated’ with the blood of Christ. Peter sees a parallel between the Water of Noah’s flood and that of baptism (1 Peter 3:20), and Paul finds a mystical and sacramental meaning in the sea and the cloud, in both of which the Israelites may be said to have been baptized into Moses (1 Corinthians 10:2). It is the teaching of John that Jesus Christ came by (διά) Water and blood, not with (ἐν) the Water only, but with the Water and the blood (1 John 5:6). Historically the baptism and death of the Messiah were crises in His activity, occurring once for all at the beginning and the end of His ministry, but spiritually He ever abides with and in the Water and the blood, which are ‘the two wells of life in His Church, His baptism being repeated in every fresh act of baptism, and His blood of atonement never failing in the communion cup’ (H. James (James 3:11-12) illustrates the moral law that the same heart cannot overflow in both blessings and curses by the natural law that the same fountain cannot send forth both sweet Water and bitter-a variation on Christ’s words in Matthew 7:16-17. The prophet of the Revelation (recalling Ezekiel 1:24; Ezekiel 43:2) once compares the voice of Christ (Revelation 1:15), and twice that of the great multitude of the redeemed (Revelation 14:2,Revelation 19:6), to the voice of many Waters, in the one case thinking perhaps of the music of waves quietly breaking, in the other of the thunder of great billows crashing, around the aegean island which was his place of exile. He constantly uses fountains of Water, and clear rivers, as symbols of spiritual life and blessing. Per contra, he imagines ‘the angel of the Waters’ turning Rome’s rivers and fountains of Water into blood (Revelation 16:4); for, as she has shed the blood of saints like Water, it is but just that she should have to drink blood-a grim species of poetic justice. The great star Wormwood falls in Earth’s sweet Waters, turning them to wormwood, and those who drink of them die because they are so bitter (John 1:33). The Waters of the Euphrates are to be dried up, like the Jordan before Joshua, that the powers of the East-Parthia and her confederates-may come to the invasion of the Roman Empire (Revelation 16:12). The great harlot, Rome, sits proudly upon many Waters-ruling peoples and nations by many rivers and seas (Revelation 17:1; Revelation 17:15)-but her day of judgment and dethronement is in sight (Revelation 17:1)
Wells And Springs - By those living in a temperate climate, where the well or the aqueduct furnishes to every house a supply of Water practically inexhaustible, no idea can be formed of the extreme distress caused by thirst, and of the luxury of relieving it by drinking pure Watera luxury which is said to excel all other pleasures of sense. One must reside or travel in a Syrian climate to realize the beauty and force of the allusions of Scripture to "water out of the wells of salvation," "cold Water to a thirsty soul," "the fountain of living Waters," and many others. ...
So valuable was a supply of Water, that a field containing a spring was a princely dowry, Judges 1:13-15 , and a well was a matter of strife and negotiation between different tribes. Thus we read that Abraham, in making a treaty with king Abimelech, "reproved him because of a well of Water which Abimelich's servants had violently taken away," and the ownership of the well was sealed to Abraham by a special oath and covenant, Genesis 21:25-31 . In negotiating with the king of Edom for a passage through his territory, the Israelites said, "We will go by the highway; and if I and my cattle drink of thy Water, then I will pay for it," Numbers 20:17-19 . Still stronger is the expression in Lamentations 5:4 : "We have drunk our own Water for money:" that is, we bought it of our foreign rulers, though we are the natural proprietors of the wells that furnished it. The custom of demanding pay for Water of the traveler is still found in some parts of the East; while in many other towns a place is provided where cold Water and sometimes bread are offered gratuitously to the stranger, at the expense of the village, or as an act of charity by the benevolent, Mark 9:41 . ...
Wells are sometimes found in Palestine furnished with a well-sweep and bucket, or a windlass; and in some cases there were steps leading down to the Water, Genesis 24:15,16 ; but usually the Water is drawn with pitchers and ropes; and the stone curbs of ancient wells bear the marks of long use. They were often covered with a large flat stone, to exclude the flying sand and secure the Water to its owners, and also for the security of strangers, who were liable to fall into them unawares- a mischance which very often occurs in modern Syria, and against which the beneficent law of Moses made provision, Exodus 21:33-34 . This stone was removed about sunset, when the females of the vicinity drew their supply of Water for domestic use, and the flocks and herds drank from the stone troughs which are still found beside almost every well. ...
The cut above given presents a view of "The Fountain of the Virgin" at Nazareth, so called from the strong probability that the mother of our Lord was wont to draw Water from it, as the women of Nazareth do at this day. Every day witnesses there what might almost be described in the very words of Genesis 24:11 : "And he made his camels to kneel down without the city, by a well of Water, at the time of the evening, even the time that women go out to draw Water. " It is an uncommon sight to see "a man bearing a pitcher of Water," Mark 14:13 . This was found, almost destroyed by lying in Water. As the traveler stands by this venerated well and thinks of the long series of men of a hundred nations and generations who have drunk of its Waters, thirsted again, and died, he is most forcibly affected by the truth of Christ's words to the Samaritan woman, and made to feel his own perishing need of the Water "springing up into everlasting life," John 4:1-54

Irrigation - Owing to the lack of a sufficient rainfall, Babylonia and Egypt have to be supplied with Water from their respective rivers. The Water is conducted along these canals by various mechanical devices, and at a cost of great labour. They are always established near natural supplies of Water, which is made to flow from the source (either directly, or raised, when necessary, by a sakiyeh or endless chain of buckets worked by a horse, ox, or donkey) into little channels ramifying through the garden. Artificial Water-pools for gardens are referred to in Ecclesiastes 2:6

Wells and cisterns are the two sources of oriental supply, each house had its own cistern (2 Kings 18:31); to thirst for filthy Waters is suicidal. " A rope and bucket or Water skin raised the Water; the marks of the rope are still visible in the furrows worn in the low wall. See Numbers 24:7, "he shall stream with Water out of his two buckets," namely, suspended from the two ends of a pole, the usual way of fetching Water from the Euphrates in Balaam's neighbourhood. ...
Wells are often contended for and are places of Bedouin attacks on those drawing Water (Exodus 2:16-17; Judges 5:11; 2 Samuel 23:15-16). Οboth (Numbers 21:10-11) means holes dug in the ground for Water. deep, seven feet six inches in diameter, and lined with rough masonry; a pitcher unbroken at the bottom evidenced that there was Water at some seasons, otherwise the fall would have broken the pitcher

It had not atonement in view, but the cleansing by Water of those who, having their dwelling and place in the camp, where Jehovah's sanctuary was, had become defiled by the way: cf. The washing of the feet of those that are clean, as taught by the Lord in John 13 has this character of cleansing with Water
Water Watering, Waterless - , Hebrews 9:19 ; James 3:12 ; in 1 John 5:6 , that Christ "came by Water and blood," may refer either (1) to the elements that flowed from His side on the Cross after His Death, or, in view of the order of the words and the prepositions here used, (2) to His baptism in Jordan and His Death on the Cross. As to (1), the "water" would symbolize the moral and practical cleansing effected by the removal of defilement by our taking heed to the Word of God in heart, life and habit; cp. As to (2), Jesus the Son of God came on His mission by, or through, "water" and blood, namely, at His baptism, when He publicly entered upon His mission and was declared to be the Son of God by the witness of the Father, and at the Cross, when He publicly closed His witness; the Apostle's statement thus counteracts the doctrine of the Gnostics that the Divine Logos united Himself with the Man Jesus at His baptism, and left him at Gethsemane. ...
The word "water" is used symbolically in John 3:5 , either (1) of the Word of God, as in 1 Peter 1:23 (cp. Some regard the kai, "and," in John 3:5 , as epexegetic, == "even," in which case the "water" would be emblematic of the Spirit, as in John 7:38 (cp. John 4:10,14 ), but not in 1 John 5:8 , where the Spirit and the "water" are distinguished. "The Water of life," Revelation 21:6 ; 22:1,17 , is emblematic of the maintenance of spiritual life in perpetuity. In Revelation 17:1 the "waters" are symbolic of nations, peoples, etc. ...

B — 1: ποτίζω (Strong's #4222 — Verb — potizo — pot-id'-zo ) "to give to drink," is used (a) naturally in Luke 13:15 , "watering," with reference to animals; (b) figuratively, with reference to spiritual ministry to converts, 1 Corinthians 3:6-8 . ...

Wells - When the pool, the fountain, and the river fail, the oriental shepherd is reduced to the necessity of digging wells; and, in the patriarchal age, the discovery of Water was reckoned of sufficient importance to be the subject of a formal report to the master of the flock, who commonly distinguished the spot by an appropriate name. And Isaac digged again the wells of Water which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham; and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them. And Isaac's servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of springing Water. And the herdmen of Gerar did strive with Isaac's herdmen, saying, The Water is ours; and he called the name of the well Ezek, because they strove with him. " So important was the successful operation of sinking a well in Canaan, that the sacred historian remarks in another passage: "And it came to pass the same day, (that Isaac and Abimelech had concluded their treaty,) that Isaac's servants came and told him concerning the well which they had digged, and said unto him, We have found Water; and he called it Shebah, (the oath,) therefore the name of the city is Beershebah unto this day," Genesis 26:33 . In this manner the well was covered, from which the flocks of Laban were commonly Watered: and the shepherds, careful not to leave them open at any time, patiently waited till all the flocks were gathered together, before they removed the covering, and then, having drawn a sufficient quantity of Water, they replaced the stone immediately. The extreme scarcity of Water in these arid regions, entirely justifies such vigilant and parsimonious care in the management of this precious fluid; and accounts for the fierce contentions about the possession of a well, which so frequently happened between the shepherds of different masters. But after the question of right, or of possession, was decided, it would seem the shepherds were often detected in fraudulently Watering their flocks and herds from their neighbour's well. To prevent this, they secured the cover with a lock, which continued in use so late as the days of Chardin, who frequently saw such precautions used in different parts of Asia, on account of the real scarcity of Water there. This was probably the reason that the shepherds of Padanaram declined the invitation of Jacob to Water the flocks, before they were all assembled; either they had not the key of the lock which secured the stone, or, if they had, they durst not open it but in the presence of Rachel, to whose father the well belonged. It is ridiculous to suppose the stone was so heavy that the united strength of several Mesopotamian shepherds could not roll it from the mouth of the well, when Jacob had strength or address to remove it alone; or that, though a stranger, he ventured to break a standing rule for Watering the flocks, which the natives did not dare to do, and that without opposition. To Water the flocks was an operation of much labour, and occupied a considerable space of time. It was, therefore, an office of great kindness with which Jacob introduced himself to the notice of his relations, to roll back the stone which lay upon the mouth of the well, and draw Water for the flocks which Rachel tended. Some of these wells are furnished with troughs and flights of steps down to the Water, and other contrivances to facilitate the labour of Watering the cattle. It is evident the well to which Rebekah went to draw Water, near the city of Nahor, had some convenience of this kind, for it is written, "Rebekah hasted and emptied her pitcher into the trough, and ran again unto the well to draw Water, and drew for all his camels," Genesis 24:20 . A trough was also placed by the well, from which the daughters of Jethro Watered his flocks, Exodus 2:16 ; and, if we may judge from circumstances, was a usual contrivance in every part of the east. Park found a trough near the well, from which the Moors Watered their cattle, in the sandy deserts of Sahara. Shaw, speaking of the occupation of the Moorish women in Barbary, says, "To finish the day, at the time of the evening, even at the time that the women go out to draw Water, they are still to fit themselves with a pitcher or goat skin, and tying their sucking children behind them, trudge it in this manner two or three miles to fetch Water. " "The women in Persia," says Morier, "go in troops to draw Water for the place. I have seen the elder ones sitting and chatting at the well, and spinning the coarse cotton of the country, while the young girls filled the skins which contain the Water, and which they all carry on their backs into the town. " "A public well," says Forbes, "without the gate of Diamonds, in the city Dhuboy, was a place of great resort: there, most travellers halted for shade and refreshment: the women frequented the fountains and reservoirs morning and evening, to draw Water. Many of the Gwzerat wells have steps leading down to the surface of the Water; others have not, nor do I recollect any furnished with buckets and ropes for the convenience of a stranger; most travellers are therefore provided with them, and halcarras and religious pilgrims frequently carry a small brass pot affixed to a long string for this purpose

Water of Jealousy - (Numbers 5:11-31 ) The ritual prescribed consisted in the husband's bringing before the priest the woman suspected of infidelity, and the essential part of it is unquestionably the oath to which the "water" was subsidiary, symbolical and ministerial.

Acqua!' That cry, shrill as it is, has sounded sweetly in the ears of many a thirsty soul, and will for ages yet to come, if throats and thirst survive so long. How forcibly it calls to our mind the Saviour's favourite imagery, in which he compares the grace which he bestows on all who diligently seek it, to 'living Water;' and how much that old man is like the faithful preacher of the word, who, having filled his vessel at the well, wears himself out by continually bearing the burden of the Lord, and crying, 'Water! Water!' amid crowds of sinners, who must drink or die. Instead of the poor Italian Water-bearer, we see before us the man of God, whose voice is heard in the chief places of concourse, proclaiming the divine invitation, 'Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the Waters!' until he grows grey in the service, anÃ§l men say, 'Surely those aged limbs have need of rest ;' yet rest he courts not, but pursues his task of mercy; never laying down his charge till he lays down his body, and never ceasing to work until he ceases to live. The Water was good enough, but the vessel which held it imparted an evil taste to it; the like has often happened in the ministry, the gospel preached has been true and divine, but the unhallowed savor of an inconsistent life, or a bitter disposition, has marred the sweetness of the Word. May all of us by whom the Lord hands out the Water of life, see that we are clean and pure in conversation, vessels fit for the Master's use. Men who are very thirsty will drink out of any cup, however dirty; but no conceivable advantage can arise from filth, and hundreds will turn away from the Water because of it, and thus a very faulty ministry may be useful because of the truth contained in it, but its sinfulness can do no good, and may serve as an excuse to the ungodly for refusing the gospel of Christ. ...
In the square of the Doge's palace are two wells, from which the sellers of Water obtain their stock-in-trade, but we can hardly compare either of them with the overflowing spring from which the preacher of righteousness draws his supplies. One of the wells is filled artificially and is not much used for drinking, since the coldness and freshness of Water springing naturally from earth's deep fountains is lacking. ' The other well yields most delicious Water, but its flow is scanty. The lower we can fall, the sooner will the springing Water of grace reach us, and the more completely shall we be filled with it. ...
It would be a great misfortune for those who buy their Water in the streets, if the itinerant vendors should begin to fill their casks and bottles from muddy streams. Sundry divines in our age have become weary of the old-fashioned well of which our fathers drank, and would fain have us go to their Abana and Pharpar, but we are still firm in the belief that the Water from the rock has no rival, and we shall not, we hope, forsake it for any other

Red Heifer - The ashes of a ‘red heifer’ more correctly a red cow added to ‘running Water,’ formed the most powerful means known to the Hebrews of removing the defilement produced by contact with a dead body.

This conduit Isaiah 1708 feet long, 16 feet high at the entrance, but only 16 inches at its narrowest tributaries which sent their Waters down from the city pools or temple wells to swell Siloam. To this you descend by a few rude steps, under which the Water pours itself into the main pool. This pool is oblong, about 52 feet long, 18 feet broad and 19 feet deep; but it is never filled, the Water either passing directly through or being maintained at a depth of three or four feet. This pool, which we may call the second , seems anciently to have poured its Waters into a third before it proceeded to Water the royal gardens. " ( Nehemiah 2:14 ) The expression in (Isaiah 8:6 ) "waters of Shiloah that go softly," seems to point to the slender rivulet, flowing gently though once very profusely out of Siloam into the lower breadth of level where the king's gardens, or royal paradise, stood, and which is still the greenest spot about the holy city. It was to Siloam that the Levite was sent with the golden pitcher on the "last and great day of the feast" of Tabernacles; it was from Siloam that he brought the Water which was then poured over the sacrifice, in memory of the Water from the rock of Rephidim; and it was to this Siloam Water that the Lord pointed when he stood in the temple on that day and cried, "If any man thirst let him come unto me and drink

The native uses his feet to regulate the flow of Water into each of the squares or basins of land, and by a dexterous movement of his toes forms or removes a tiny embankment, as may be required to admit the proper flow of Water, another common mode is to use the "shadoof," a bucket attached to a long pole hung on a pivot, balanced by a stone or a lump of clay at one end, and having the bucket on the other end. To this day the Nile is lined for hundreds of miles with these shadoofs, worked by men, women, and children, who lift the Water out of the river to Irrigate their fields. Both these methods are believed to be very ancient, and may be alluded to by Moses in contrasting the fountains and rainfalls in Palestine with the absence of this supply in Egypt: "For the land, whither thou goest in to possess it, is not as the land of Egypt, from whence ye came out, where thou sowedst thy seed, and Wateredst it with thy foot as a garden of herbs.

Siloam, the Pool of - of the temple mountain), the wall above the house of David, the Water gate, and the king's garden (compare Nehemiah 12:37 with Nehemiah 3:15). The Water passes hence by a channel cut in the rock, and covered for a short way, into the gardens below which occupy the site of "the lower pool" or "the king's pool" (Nehemiah 2:14). From this artificial cave at the west end of Siloam an open channel in the rock conveys the Water into Siloam. From Siloam he brought the Water to be poured over the sacrifice in memory of the Water at Rephidim. Messiah "the sent One" (Luke 4:18; John 10:36) answers to the type Siloam the sent Water (Job 5:10; Ezekiel 31:4) that healed; He flows gently, softly, and healing, like Siloam fertilising and beautifying, not turbid as the winter torrent Kedron, nor sweeping destructively all before it as Euphrates (symbol of Αssyria) , but gliding on in its silent mission of beneficence (Isaiah 8:6; Isaiah 42:1-4; Isaiah 40:11; 2 Corinthians 10:1). Siloam was called so from sending its Waters to refresh the gardens below, still the greenest spot about Jerusalem, and abounding in olives, figs, and pomegranates. The Water for the ashes of the red heifer also was taken from Siloam (Dach Τalm.

It was, as my friend had reported, a broad sheet of Water, with fresh green trees along its banks; and yet there was nothing actually before us but parched yellow sand. Never had I seen any landscape so vivid as this seeming one; never Water so bright or trees so softly green, so tall and stately. " ...

The stone Waterpots (כְּלֵי אֲבָנִים in Rabbinic writings) were placed outside the reception-room, for the washing of the hands before and after eating, as well as of the vessels used (cf. John (37, 38), that it was not the Water in those vessels that was changed into wine, but the Water which the servants drew from the source after having filled the vessels, has commended itself to many students of the Gospels. ) ‘It is unlikely that Water taken from vessels of purification should have been employed for the purpose of the miracle. ’ This argument holds good even supposing that the vessels had already been partially or wholly emptied by pouring Water on the hands of the guests (Plummer, in loc. , are perhaps most naturally understood to mean that the same action of drawing Water from the source was to be carried on as before, but that the Water so drawn was now to have a different destination. In like manner John 2:9 seems to imply that the servants who had drawn the Water had borne it, in obedience to Jesus’ word, straight from the source to the ruler of the feast. ) Though it would be hazardous to say that the words οἱ ἠντληκότες τὸ ὕδωρ in John 2:9 render it probable that ὕδωρ (also from the source) is to be understood after ἀντλήσατε in John 2:8, it may yet be stated that ἀντλεῖν is frequently used of the drawing of Water (cf. The turning of the Water into wine was a σημεῖον by which Jesus manifested His glory. The filling of the vessels with Water was part of the ‘sign,’ and pointed to the fulfilling of the Law (cf. It had reached its high-water mark, if we may so speak. The vessels were filled and then left as they stood, while the Water which the servants, in obedience to Jesus’ word, drew from the source was carried past them and delivered to the ruler of the feast, who on tasting it said to the bridegroom, ‘Thou hast kept the good wine until now. The Waterpot of the woman of Samaria was one of those Jars of sun-dried clay which are still in use in the East, and which are carried upon the head or on the shoulder (Encyc. 187–188, who calls attention to the word garrah or jarrah for a Water-pitcher, from which our word ‘jar’ is derived). Her leaving her Waterpot was not, as some say, because her faith in Christ made her forget the purpose for which she had originally come, but because it impelled her to announce her discovery of Him to others without delay; and in her haste to return to Sychar with the news, she did not choose to be encumbered with her heavy Waterpot, which could be fetched at any time
Baptism - The plural" baptisms" is used in the wider sense, all purifications by Water; as of the priest's hands and feet in the laver outside before entering the tabernacle, in the daily service (Exodus 30:17-21); of the high priest's flesh in the holy place on the day of atonement (Leviticus 16:23); of persons ceremonially unclean (Leviticus 14; 15; Leviticus 16:26-28; Leviticus 17:15; Leviticus 22:4-6), a leper, one with an issue, one who ate that which died of itself, one who touched a dead body, the one who let go the scape-goat or buried the ashes of the red heifer, of the people before a religious festival (Exodus 19:10; John 11:55). John's was with Water only; Christ's with the Holy Spirit and with fire (Luke 3:16). This is the sense of 1 John 5:6; "this is He that came by Water and blood;" by Water at His consecration by baptism to His mediatorial ministry for us, when He received the Father's testimony to His Messiahship and His divine Sonship (John 1:33-34). Corresponding to His is our baptism of Water and the Spirit, the seal of initiatory incorporation with Him (John 3:5). His coming "by Water and blood," as vividly set forth in the issue of Water and blood from His pierced side, was seen and solemnly attested by John (John 19:34-35). John Baptist came only baptizing with Water; therefore was not Messiah. Jesus came, undergoing Himself the double baptism of Water and blood, then baptizing us with the Spirit cleansing, of which Water is the sacramental seal, and with His atoning blood once for all shed and of perpetual efficacy; therefore He Messiah. It is His shed blood which gives Water baptism its spiritual significancy. ...
"The Spirit, the Water, and the blood agree in one" (Greek: "tend to the one result," "testify to the one truth"), i. , agree in testifying to Jesus' Sonship and Messiaship by the sacramental grace in Water baptism received by the penitent believer through His droning blood and His inwardly witnessing Spirit (1 John 5:5-6; 1 John 5:8; 1 John 5:10), answering to the testimony to Jesus' Sonship and Messiahship by His baptism, by His crucifixion, and by the Spirit's manifestation in Him. By Christ's baptism, by His blood shedding, and by the Spirit's past and present working in Him, the Spirit, the Water, and the blood are the threefold witness to His divine Messiahship. Any spiritualizing that denies outward baptism with Water, in the face of Christ's command and the apostles' practice, must logically lead to rationalistic evasions of Scripture in general. Thus 1 Peter 3:21, literally "which Water, being antitype (to the Water of the flood) is now saving (puts in a state of salvation) us also (as well as Noah), to wit, baptism. "...
It saves us also, not of itself (any more than the Water saved Noah of itself; the Water saved him only by sustaining the ark, built in faith), but the spiritual thing conjoined with it, repentance and faith, of which it is the seal: as Peter proceeds to explain, "not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God (the instrument whereby it so saves, being) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ" (Colossians 2:12; Ephesians 1:19-20); not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but of the soul. Water baptism can put away that filth, but the Spirit's baptism alone can put away this (Ephesians 2:11). The ark (Christ) and His Spirit-filled true church saves, by living union with Him and it; not the Water which only flowed round the ark and buoyed it up, and which so far from saving was the very instrument of destroying the ungodly. hence it is written, "they were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea" (the sea, according to some of the fathers, representing the Water, the cloud the Spirit). in connection with the laying on of hands (Acts 2:38; Acts 10:47; Acts 19:5-6); proving that the Water sign and the Spirit are not inseparably connected. At the same time, there being but one preposition to govern both nouns, "born of Water and the Spirit" implies the designed close connection of the two in the case of penitent believers (John 3:5). In Ephesians 5:26 "Christ gave Himself for the church, that He might sanctify and cleanse it with the laver (Greek) of Water by the word
Drink - Palestine lacks fresh Water rivers and lakes and its dependence upon rain after its yearly hot, dry period makes drought an ongoing possibility. In view of frequently occurring shortages of Water, thirst and drinking are of particular significance in the Scriptures. ...
The phrases "drink from your river of delights" (Psalm 36:8 ) and "spring of living Water" (Jeremiah 2:13 ) may well be sources of the title "river of the Water of life" that flows from the temple of God, creating so many joys (Ezekiel 47:1-12 ; Revelation 22:1-2 ). ...
In the New Testament Christ invites people to drink the Water that will "become in him a spring of Water welling up to eternal life" (John 4:14 ). While the Water here is designated as eternal life, in John 7:38-39 the drinking of "living Water" is related to the Spirit who would be given after Christ was glorified. "The Spirit and the bride say, Come!' And let him who hears say, Come!' Whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the Water of life" ( Revelation 22:17 ; cf. This drinking of the Water of life is parallel to eating the bread of life (John 6:27,50-51 ). ...
Even the Water that David's mighty men had obtained from the well at Bethlehem at dire risk to their lives was viewed so dearly by David that he would not drink it but poured it out as an offering to God (2 Samuel 23:13-17 ). However in Jeremiah 8:14 ; 9:14 , and 23:15, God is said to give poisoned Water to his own people, referring to the bitter punishment they are being called to bear. "To drink Water from one's own cistern" means to ensure that your wife is the source of your sexual pleasure, as Water refreshes a thirsty man (Proverbs 5:15 )

Egypt, Land of - As to rain the country differs materially from Palestine, which "drinketh Water of the rain of heaven;" for in Egypt, except by the sea-coast, it rarely rains, the land being Watered from the river, which rises once a year, overflowing its banks in many places, and, as it retires, leaving a rich sediment on the soil. Canals convey the Water to more distant parts. The land is Watered 'by the foot,' that is, by removing the soil, and letting the Water flow
Nile - It bore most of the internal traffic of Egypt; but it was pre-eminently the one source of Water, and so of life and fertility, in a land which, without it, would have been desert. The Waters of these tributaries are charged with organic matter washed down by the floods, and this is spread over the fields of Egypt by the inundation. The crops were sown as the Water retreated, and on the lower ground a second crop was obtained by artificial irrigation . Canals and embankments regulated the Waters in ancient times. The Water was raised for the irrigation of the fields by shadÃ»fs , i. Water-wheels were probably introduced in Greek times. In modern days, vast dams to store the Water against the time of low Nile, and steam pumps (in Lower Egypt) to raise it, have changed the aspect of high Nile and revolutionized the system of irrigation; but for the smaller operations the old methods are still practised. bringing offerings to the gods; the figure is that of an obese man with Water-plants on his head

The woman of Samaria was familiar with the expression, and her question was quite natural and appropriate, ‘Art thou greater than our father Jacob?’ ‘Here is an ordinary man offering to supply better Water, spring Water, in the place where the patriarch Jacob had been obliged to content himself with building a cistern and drinking cistern Water’ (Wendt, St. The Water in Jacob’s Well (wh. Jeremiah 2:13 especially illustrates the difference between the spring or fountain, gushing forth with its unstinted and unfailing supply, ‘overflowing, ever-flowing,’ and the cistern, so liable to be destroyed by cracking (Land and Book, 287), which at the best cannot afford a refreshing draught like that of the bubbling spring, and which cannot permanently retain the Water collected in it. Christ does not call Himself ‘the Living Water,’ as He calls Himself ‘the Living bread. ’ What He means by ‘the living Water’ is the word of salvation which He preaches (cf. Wesley’s ‘Spring Thou up within my heart, Rise to all eternity,’ is quite in harmony with Israel’s Water-drawing song, in which the spring is addressed as a living being (Numbers 21:17, cf. —‘Pouring out Water before the Lord’ was a primitive ritual practice, of which the origin is uncertain. It was ‘in all probability a survival from a time when Water (in the desert) was considered an article of value’ (Kantzsch in Hasting's Dictionary of the Bible , Ext. There are no traces of it beyond the time of David (a reference to it in 1 Kings 18:33 is not probable); but the practice of pouring out Water as a drink-offering continued to be observed, or was revived, in connexion with the Feast of Tabernacles. Every morning during the seven days of the feast Water was drawn from the spring of Siloam in a golden pitcher, and was poured into a basin at the top of the altar (Encyc. The libation of Water was probably a prayer-offering for abundant rain for the new seed-time (ib. Hosea 6:3); and we may well believe that the symbolical act of pouring out Water gave occasion to our Lord’s looking forward to the abundant showers with which He was soon to Water the earth. 1 Corinthians 10:4), and perhaps more especially those OT sayings in which it had been predicted that living Water should flow out from Jerusalem, or from the House of the Lord (Ezekiel 47:1; Ezekiel 47:12,Zechariah 14:8,Joel 3:18, cf. But may it not be the case that, in our Lord’s view, what had been spoken concerning Jerusalem and the Temple was now to be applied to the inner personal life of the believer, enriched by the entrance of His word, and renewed by His Holy Spirit? This sanctified personal life was what now answered to the sanctuary from which it had been foretold that living Waters should flow out. The saying was fulfilled after Pentecost, when ‘rivers of living Water’ flowed out from the Lord’s witnesses ‘unto the uttermost part of the earth,’ ‘beginning at Jerusalem’* Dissolve - Thus ice is converted into Water by dissolution. Thus Water dissolves salt and sugar. To be melted to be converted from a solid to a fluid state as, sugar dissolves in Water

Bulrush - The stalk rises to the height of six or seven cubits, beside two under Water. These vegetables require much Water for their growth; when, therefore, the river on whose banks they grew was reduced, they perished sooner than other plants.

Whilst it is yet in its greenness, and not cut down, it withereth before any other herb
Blood And Water - BLOOD AND Water (John 19:31-37). On being withdrawn the spear was followed by a gush of blood and Water.

Salt (2) - This remarkable sheet of Water is of an elongated oval shape; but the regularity of the figure is broken by a large peninsula projecting from the eastern shore near to the southern end, dividing the whole into two reaches which communicate by a somewhat narrow channel. The superficial area has been estimated at about 300 square miles; but, as it would seem that the Water does not constantly stand at the same level, that carried off by evaporation not always balancing that Drought in by streams, the dimensions of the lake are subject to not inconsiderable variation. A line of drift-wood encircles the lake, branches and limbs of trees, brought down by the Jordan and other torrents, and marking the highest level of the Water. And, as there is no outlet, the Waters are intensely salt. The Waters were said to be almost motionless, and their steam pernicious. Moreover, the depth of the Water of the lake i& very great, 1310 feet at its deepest point towards the northern end; the southern end is shallow. The supposition, formerly most common was that these cities were submerged by the Waters of the sea at the time of the great catastrophe—a theory which appears to be inconsistent with the geological and physical character of the region
