Daughter.

Daughter. [N] [E]

The word is used in Scripture not only for daughter, but for granddaughter or other female descendant. ( Genesis 24:48 ) It is used of the female inhabitants of a place or country, ( Genesis 6:2 ; Luke 23:28 ) and of cities in general, ( Isaiah 10:32 ; 23:12 ) but more specifically of dependent towns or hamlets, while to the principal city the correlative "mother" is applied. ( Numbers 21:25 ) "Daughters of music," i.e. singing birds, ( Ecclesiastes 12:4 ) refers to the power of making and enjoying music.
