Aholah



aholah

she has her own tent, a name used by Ezekiel (23:4, 5, 36, 44) as a symbol of the idolatry of the kingdom of Israel. This kingdom is described as a lewdwoman, an adulteress, given up to the abominations and idolatries of the Egyptians and Assyrians. Because of her crimes, she was carried away captive, and ceased to be a kingdom. (Comp. Ps. 78:67-69; 1 Kings 12:25-33; 2 Chr. 11:13-16.)

Historical Examples

And the names of them were aholah the elder, and Aholibah her sister: and they were mine, and they bare sons and daughters.
The Prophet Ezekiel Arno C. Gaebelein

Little comment is needed on this final section; there is a recapitulation of the sins of aholah and Aholibah.
The Prophet Ezekiel Arno C. Gaebelein
