Subject: [B-Greek] John 4:7 DOS MOI PEIN

Gospel of John 4:7...LEGEI AUTHi hO IHSOUS, DOS MOI PEIN.

I’m trying to understand Infinitives, and would like for anyone to explain 
to me the syntax of DOS MOI PEIN. I understand that MOI is an unusual 
instance of a Dative used as ‘subject’ of an Infinitive. In what sense is 
MOI acting as the subject of PEIN?
