In this bottom
scene we see four prophets with scrolls, but all the
quotations on the scrolls are from Isaiah. The scroll of the
prophet in the upper left reads exgredietur virga de
radice Jesse, "a rod shall grow from the root of
Jesse," Isaiah 11:1.
The other scrolls
together present Isaiah 7:14-15:
Upper right: Ecce
virgo con[c]ipiet [et] pariet filium, "Behold a virgin
shall conceive and bear a son."
Lower left: Et vocabitur nomen eius, "and his name shall be called"
Lower right: Emmanuel.
