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.
