Daughter-A) Biblically, the word daughter refers to a female as the producer of nourishment for infants as the father's offspring. B) A female offspring whose natural and ultimate fulfillment is suckling a child. C) The concept of a natural father's female offspring as the milk producers of the family is brought over to the church. Thus, the term defines the church of the Lord Jesus Christ as the milk dispenser of His word. See 1 Peter 2:1-4. D) Symbolically, a city and its citizens, for instance the Bible terms Israel's cities the daughters of Israel. E) Term of endearment, "apple of my eye," was a paternal one. Its use meant God was saying that is what Israel was to Him (Deuteronomy 32:10), along with Zion (Zechariah 2:8), a daughter city that He cherishes greatly. See Milk. Psalm 48:11 and Isaiah 16:2.
