'The joy and peace of believeing the Eternal salvation' is referrered to as abounding in Hope. (Romans 15:13)

The God of the Hope of both Jews and Gentiles, who made the promises of eternal salvation to both; and, who has fulfilled them most punctually, fill you with joy and peace in believing you may abound in that same hope, through the power of the Holy Spirit.
