WEARINESS.—The one reference to the weariness of our Lord which we find in the Gospels occurs in the account of His journey from Judaea into Galilee. We read that on His way, beaten down by heavy toil (κεκοπιακώς), He sat upon the well near to the village of Sychar (John 4:6). The allusion is an eloquent testimony to the fact that He who is touched by the feeling of our infirmity shared that infirmity in its commonest effect of physical exhaustion. See Humanity of Christ.
