Their possessions and habitations were Bethel and its daughter-towns; and to the east Naaran; and to the west Gezer with its daughter-towns; and Shechem and its daughter-towns as far as Azzah and its daughter-towns; Bible

“daughter-towns.” The Hebrew text is just “daughters,” referring to small close-by towns that are supported by a “mother” town, a large and normally well-fortified town (see commentary on Josh. 15:45).
