Rivers of Living Water

John 7

37 y On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, z "If anyone thirsts, let him a come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, b as 1 the Scripture has said, c 'Out of his heart will flow rivers of d living water.'" 39 Now e this he said about the Spirit, f whom those who believed in him were to receive, g for as yet the Spirit had not been h given, i because Jesus was not yet glorified.
