John 4:12

Context
NETBible

Surely you’re not greater than our ancestor 1  Jacob, are you? For he gave us this well and drank from it himself, along with his sons and his livestock.” 2 

XREF

Isa 53:2,3; Mt 12:42; Joh 8:53; Heb 3:3

NET © Notes

tn Or “our forefather”; Grk “our father.”

tn Questions prefaced with μή (mh) in Greek anticipate a negative answer. This can sometimes be indicated by using a “tag” at the end. In this instance all of v. 12 is one question. It has been broken into two sentences for the sake of English style (instead of “for he” the Greek reads “who”).
