I know we've done this before here on TJ, but it's been a while.
I'll start off with a couple of obvious easy ones here....

Isa 7:13; Then he said, “Listen now, O house of David! Is it too slight a thing for you to try the patience of men, that you will try the patience of my God as well?
Isa 7:14; Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel.
Isa 7:15; He will eat curds and honey [n]at the time He knows enough to refuse evil and choose good.
Isa 7:16; For before the boy will know enough to refuse evil and choose good, the land whose two kings you dread will be forsaken.

Of course there is only one place in the Bible where a virgin actually has a child.
His name is called Immanuel in Matt 1:23;

Isa 53:1; Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?
Isa 53:2; For He grew up before Him like a tender shoot, And like a root out of parched ground;
He has no stately form or majesty That we should look upon Him, Nor appearance that we should be
attracted to Him.
Isa 53:3; He was despised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief;
And like one from whom men hide their face He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.
Isa 53:4; Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried;
Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted.
Isa 53:5; But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities;
The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.
Isa 53:6; All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way;
But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.
Isa 53:7; He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He did not open His mouth;
Like a lamb that is led to slaughter, And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers,
So He did not open His mouth.
Isa 53:8; By oppression and judgment He was taken away; And as for His generation, who considered
That He was cut off out of the land of the living For the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke
was due?

Isa 53:9; His grave was assigned with wicked men, Yet He was with a rich man in His death,
Because He had done no violence, Nor was there any deceit in His mouth.
Isa 53:10; But the Lord was pleased To crush Him, putting Him to grief;
If He would render Himself as a guilt offering,
He will see His offspring, He will prolong His days,
And the good pleasure of the Lord will prosper in His hand.
Isa 53:11; As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied;
By His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many,
As He will bear their iniquities.

Isa 53:12; Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great, And He will divide the booty with the strong;
Because He poured out Himself to death, And was numbered with the transgressors;
Yet He Himself bore the sin of many, And interceded for the transgressors.

Wow.... what an amazing prophecy. Is there anyone else besides Jesus in the Bible this could be about?

From the days of eternity.”

I will declare thy name unto my brethren: in the midst of the congregation will I praise thee.
Psalms 22:22

=>

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.

For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,


Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.


And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.

Hebrews 2:9-13

They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture.

=>

Then the soldiers, when they had crucified Jesus, took his garments, and made four parts, to every soldier a part; and also his coat: now the coat was without seam, woven from the top throughout. They said therefore among themselves, Let us not rend it, but cast lots for it, whose it shall be: that the scripture might be fulfilled, which saith, They parted my raiment among them, and for my vesture they did cast lots. These things therefore the soldiers did.
John 19:23-24
