Abijah pursued after Jeroboam and took cities from him, Bethel with its daughter-towns and Jeshanah with its daughter-towns and Ephron with its daughter-towns. Bible see other translations

“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).

“Jeshanah.” Jeshanah is north of Bethel in the tribal area of Ephraim, and it is about three miles south of Shiloh.
