Therefore behold, the days are coming,
says Yahweh,
that I will cause an alarm of war to be heard
against Rabbah of the children of Ammon;
and it will become a desolate heap,
and her daughters will be burned with fire;
then will Israel possess those who possessed him,
says Yahweh. Bible

“her daughters.” The phrase “her daughters” is an idiomatic use of language referring to the daughter cities of Rabbah, the capital of Ammon. The daughter cities are the cities supported by the capital city. This verse is not speaking about burning the women of Ammon, but cities in it.
