CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
22:8 Thou - O Jerusalem. Mine holy things - All mine institutions, temple, sacrifices, feasts.

Furthermore, they have defiled my Temple and violated my Sabbath day!
On the very day that they sacrificed their children to their idols, they boldly came into my Temple to worship! They came in and defiled my house.
