Aholibah

also known as: Oholibah

Meaning: My tent is in her.

This is the name of an imaginary harlot, applied symbolically to Jerusalem, because she had abandoned the worship of the true God and given herself up to the idolatries of foreign nations. (Ezek. 23:4, 11, 22, 36, 44).

Her sister Aholah (Oholah) personifies the cities of Samaria.

The sin of idolatry is considered adultery against the one true God (Creator of the universe).
