RIM Chapter 55 verses 1-6

Invitation to the Thirsty

thirsty
In very dry and hot climates a person will lose as much as twelve liters  per day in perspiration and evaporation.

The verb: to thirst is attested in Akkadian, Ugaritic and in Hebrew by the word tzame – pronounced – tzaw-maw  meaning (in a literal sense) to suffer the painful effects of a “lack of water”  or (in a figurative sense) to be tormented as a result of an absolute yearning. Finding enough to drink for people and plants is a critical problem in very hot climates.  A person can lose up to twelve liters of water per day  through perspiration and evaporation. Health-wise, “lack of water” is more dangerous than lack of food. Historically, persons living in very hot and dry desert climates were morally obligated to give water to the thirsty and even to their enemy. During times of war, the water supply became of critical importance for a besieged city. Thus the account of Holofernes’ attack upon the water supply of  Bethulia in (Judith 7:6-7, 19-22).  Thirst (lack of water) was viewed as a punishment from God. The exile of Israel’s people is described by the following words: “Therefore my people go into exile without knowledge; their nobles are dying of hunger and their multitude is parched with thirst.”  Thirst can also refer to “absolute yearning”, e.g. for the word of God. “Thirsty” is an adjective to describe the misery of Israel’s people as a result of their unrequited (unrewarded) yearning for God and His words. The Old Testament does NOT attest directly  (with nothing in between) the widespread perception concerning the “thirst of the dead” Not until the story of Lazarus (Luke 16:24), we do not hear about this notion. On the other hand , this popular folk belief probably resonates (echoes; reverberates) in the references to libations whose purpose is allegedly to vivify the body of a god or man by restoring its lost moisture.
