Thirsty?

Take a drink from the fountain of living waters.

There's a moving scene in one of the movie versions of Lew Wallace's novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ.

The falsely accused Judah Ben-Hur is in a gang of chained galley slaves. Goaded by whips, the gang struggles slowly down a hot, dusty road. Ben-Hur collapses from exhaustion. As he crouches on the ground, a stranger offers him a drink of water. One of the Roman soldiers threatens the stranger, who remains silent. Something about his quiet demeanor not only melts the guard's anger but also deeply impresses Ben-Hur.
