The Giver refuses because "pain" is a major part of the memories that must be passed on............ Jonas has to feel and remember the pain. If he cannot do this......... he is not the one to take the Giver's place.

The Giver refuses because one of the given rules for his assignment was he was not allowed relief of pain that is connected to his training.
