Aholah and Aholibah
• International Standard Bible Encyclopedia
Hebrew - Aholah
Aholah -

("her own tent".) i.e., "she (Samaria, or the northern kingdom of Israel) has a tabernacle of her own"; namely, Jeroboam's golden calves of Dan and Bethel; "will worship" (Colossians 2:23). See Ezekiel 23: Aholibah (Aholah's sister). "My (Jehovah's) tent is in her," Judah: so far superior to Aholah that her worship was not self devised but God appointed. Compare Psalm 78:67-69; 1 Kings 12:25-33; 1 Chronicles 11:13-16. But both were false to Jehovah their true husband (Isaiah 54:5).

Aholah (Samaria) gave her heart to the Assyrians, trusting in their power, and imitating their splendid luxury, and following their idols. Now God's just principle is, when the church corrupts herself with the world, the instrument of her sin is the instrument of her punishment. The Assyrians on whom she had leaned carried her away captive to Assyria, whence she has never returned (2 Kings 15:18-29; 2 Kings 15:17). Aholibah (Judah) was worse, in that her privileges were greater, and she ought to have been warned by the awful fate of Samaria. But she gave herself up to be corrupted by the Babylonians; and again the instrument of her sin was also the instrument of her punishment (Jeremiah 2:19; Proverbs 1:31).
