The women of Israel are like deep wells.
The water that comes from them is pure.
The water is cold and clear and pure: the source of life.
The depth of the well and the steep sides protect the water.
It's hard to get to this water, so it can't be dirtied.
To bring water out of a well like this, you have to reach down, with the help of a long strong rope, but it is worth it.
