Daughter


"This word, besides its natural and proper sense, is used to" "designate, (1.) A niece or any female descendant (Gen. 20:12;" "24:48; 28:6). (2.) Women as natives of a place, or as professing" "the religion of a place; as, "the daughters of Zion" (Isa." "3:16), "daughters of the Philistines" (2 Sam. 1:20). (3.) Small" "towns and villages lying around a city are its "daughters," as" related to the metropolis or mother city. Tyre is in this sense called the daughter of Sidon (Isa. 23:12). (4.) The people of "Jerusalem are spoken of as "the daughters of Zion" (Isa. 37:22)." (5.) The daughters of a tree are its boughs (Gen. 49:22). (6.) "The "daughters of music" (Eccl. 12:4) are singing women."
