John 7:37 Commentary - Garner-Howes Baptist Commentary

1) "In the last day," (en de te eschate hemera) "Then in the last day," the seventh day of the feast of booths or feast of the tabernacles, Joh 7:2, Lev 23:36.

2) "The great day of the feast," (te megale tes heortes) "The great(final) day of the feast," or on the High Sabbath, the eighth day, the day following the seven days of the feast proper, Num 29:13-36. This was attended with much pomp, Neh 8:18.

3) "Jesus stood and cried, saying," (eistekei ho lesous kai ekraksen legon) "Jesus stood and cried out, repeatedly saying," asserting, offering a source of satisfaction to thirsty souls, much as recounted, Isa 55:1-3.

4) "If any man thirst," (ean tis dipsa) "If anyone at all thirsts," as your fathers thirsted in the wilderness and cried to the Lord and to Moses for natural water, to slake their thirst, Exo 17:1-7. This feast was traditionally concluded by the people of Israel singing the Hallel Psalms Psa 113:1 to Psa 118:29 as the priests poured water on the great rock before the temple, Isa 12:3; Num 20:8-11.

5) "Let him come unto me, and drink." (erchestho pros me kai pineto) "Let him come tome of his own choice and drink," who has spiritual thirst, a thirst of the soul. That ancient rock that went before Israel, as a source of water through the desert, for forty years, was declared to be Christ, who saves and satisfies the thirsty soul, 1Co 104; Joh 4:15; Rev 22:17. He was also that rejected stone, 1Pe 2:8.
