Ezekiel 22 - God appointed Ezekiel as a judge to reveal to Jerusalem her evils, especially the shedding of innocent blood. Other sins included the mocking of parents, oppressing strangers, and mistreating fatherless children and widows, verse 7. God would scatter the people among the nations, verse 15. God likens Israel to the dross that is the worthless material after melting iron and other metals, verse 18. Israel was a land not cleansed, verse 24. God speaks of looking for a man to fill in the gap of broken walls of morality and righteousness, verse 30, but He found no one!
Ezekiel 23 - God gives a parable of two sisters. Oholah would represent Israel and Oholibah would represent Judea. Both sisters belonged to God but they committed spiritual harlotry against God. First, Oholah did bad, but then Oholibah became even more corrupt, verse 11. God would bring the Babylonians who would expose both sisters for the evil of their lives and their sins of infidelity to God.
