I should not think it necessary to offer any observation upon this name, if considered in natural alliances only. But there is a great sweetness in it, when read in Scripture in allusion to the church. It is very blessed to perceive, that as the Lord Jesus fills all relations to his church, and is, in one and the same moment, her everlasting Father, her Husband, and Brother, and Friend, so the church is to Jesus, his daughter, his sister, his spouse, his beloved, his fair-one, and the only one of her mother. (Psalms 45:9-10; Song of Song of Solomon 6:9) How frequently do we find the Lord speaking of his church under the endeared character of daughter. "For the hurt of the daughter of my people, I am hurt." (Jeremiah 8:21) "Tell ye the daughter of Zion, Behold, thy King cometh unto thee!" Zechariah 9:9 with Matthew 21:5
