Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

47:1 sit in the dust. The judgments prophesied in this chapter against Babylon were fulfilled precursively when it was defeated by the Medo-Persians about 170 years later. Its eventual complete fulfillment, however, awaits the time yet future when rebuilt Babylon is completely destroyed and will finally be in silent darkness thereafter (Isaiah 47:5; see Revelation 18).
