Oholah

OHOLAH

o-ho'-la ('oholah; the King James Version Aholah):

The exact meaning is a matter of dispute. As written, it seems to mean a tent-woman, or the woman living in a tent. With a mappik in the last consonant it could mean "her tent." The term is used symbolically by Ezekiel to designate Samaria or the kingdom of Israel (Ezekiel 23:4,5,36,44).
