Who was Oholah?

The exact meaning of Oholah 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 , Ezekiel 23:5 , Ezekiel 23:36 , Ezekiel 23:44 ).
