The phrase "daughter of Jerusalem" is found seven times in the Old Testament, and the plural form "daughters of Jerusalem", is also used seven times. The word "daughter" is translated from the Hebrew word "bath". It refers to a female descendant, or to people of a particular place, city or region. Thus, the term "daughter of Jersusalem" refers to the people of Jerusalem. Jesus uses the phrase one time in the New Testament when prophesying of the coming destruction of Jerusalem and the temple, as we see here: "And there followed him a great company of people, and of women, which also bewailed and lamented him. But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children. For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us. For if they do these things in a green tree, what shall be done in the dry?" Luke 23:27-31, KJV
