Ezekiel 23:4, Oholah the elder and Oholibah her sister

Their names: Oholah the elder and Oholibah her sister; They were Mine, And they bore sons and daughters. As for their names, Samaria is Oholah, and Jerusalem is Oholibah.

JP: EVS Study Bible note on Ezekiel 23:4

The names Oholah (“her tent”) and Oholibah (“my tent is in her”) are given and quickly identified as Samaria and Jerusalem. The significance of the symbolism of these names has been largely lost, and the translations suggested here are approximate.
