The Greek verb “dipsao”

Found in Mt. 5:6; 25:35, 37, 42, 44; Jn. 4:13-15; 6:35; 7:37; 19:28; Rom. 12:20; 1 Cor. 4:11; Rev. 7:16; 21:6; 22:17, the Greek verb “dipsao” meant “desire earnestly” or “thirst.”  Jesus said those who hunger and “thirst” after righteousness are blessed (Mt. 5:6).  At the end of the time, the Lord will be mindful of those who helped those who were “thirsty” (Mt. 25:35).  Jesus is able to eliminate spiritual “thirst” (Jn. 4:14).
