What caused Isaiah to tremble? (Isaiah 21:3–4)

Isaiah 21:3-4 3At this my body is racked with pain, pangs seize me, like those of a woman in labor; I am staggered by what I hear, I am bewildered by what I see. 4My heart falters, fear makes me tremble; the twilight I longed for has become a horror to me.

New International Version 

Isaiah 21:3 - 4

ESV - 3 Therefore my loins are filled with anguish; pangs have seized me, like the pangs of a woman in labor; I am bowed down so that I cannot hear; I am dismayed so that I cannot see. 4 My heart staggers; horror has appalled me; the twilight I longed for has been turned for me into trembling.

My understanding or opinion regarding this passage is that the cause of Isaiah's distress was his vision of what would happen to Babylon in divine retribution for its captivity of Judah.
