Idolatry+Injustice go hand in hand
The Lord has shown the abominable idolatry his people committed all over his holy sanctuary--his temple, where he was to be worshiped alone. Each new abomination adding to the last. And then he notes that they have not merely violated him by transgressing the first commandment, but they have transgressed the second also by filling the land with violence, abusing their power to commit injustice and in doing so further provoking God to anger.
