Nostradamus C1 Q39: Emanuel's fate hangs over eastern Mediterranean ports. Copyright: Allan Webber, December 2015
This verse has a connection with the previous verse through the importance of pictures. In C1 Q38 there is an exposition of how Da Vinci's mathematical model for image perfection was applicable to verses of the future. In this verse the theme is continued but it empasises code systems that seem pictureless. It starts with the way that Celtic codes associate legends with stars and then mentions the Nordic story of Troy and Easter found in Snorri's Prose Edda.
The story of Christ is the focal point of the current verse with the last two lines of the text using an allusion to the crucifixion scene to emphasise the point the message comes from the runic sounds not the written words. The prophesy element that Nostradamus incorporates deals with the havoc wreaked on ports during modern times when religious wars are started by badly judged liaisons.

Extra Info: The Emanuel prophecy - Isaiah 7:11-16
Isaiah delivers God's message to Ahaz and tells him to ask for a sign to confirm that this is a true prophesy (verse 7:11). Ahaz refuses, saying he will not test God (7:12). Isaiah replies that Ahaz will have a sign whether he asks for it or not, and the sign will be the birth of a child, and the child's mother will call it Immanuel, meaning "God-with-us" (7:13-14); by the time the infant "learns to reject the bad and choose the good" (i.e., is old enough to know right from wrong) he will be eating curds and honey, and Ephraim and Syria will be destroyed (7:15-16):
