Psalms 9:18 Psalms 33:18, 22 Psalms 39:7 Psalms 42:5, 11 Psalms 43:5 Psalms 62:5 Psalms 71:5, 14 Psalms 119:49, 116, 166 Psalms 130:5, 7 Psalms 131:3 Psalms 146:5 (Depending upon how verses are translated, there are also verses that express the concept of hope (such as verses that speak of "waiting upon the LORD", implying hope in a deliverance that He will provide), but that do not use that specific word.)
I like these verses about hope from the Psalms the best (the emboldened references Tim mentioned): PS 31:24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD. PS 33:18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy; PS 33:22 Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee. PS 38:15 For in thee, O LORD, do I hope: thou wilt hear, O Lord my God. PS 39:7 And now, Lord, what wait I for? My hope is in thee. PS 42:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted in me? Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance. PS 42:11 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted within me? Hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God. PS 43:5 Why art thou cast down, O my soul? And why art thou disquieted within me? Hope in God: for I shall yet praise him, who is the health of my countenance, and my God. PS 71:5 For thou art my hope, O Lord GOD: thou art my trust from my youth. PS 78:7 That they might set their hope in God, and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments: PS 119:49 ZAIN. Remember the word unto thy servant, upon which thou hast caused me to hope. PS 119:81 CAPH. My soul fainteth for thy salvation: but I hope in thy word. PS 119:114 Thou art my hiding place and my shield: I hope in thy word. PS 119:116 Uphold me according unto thy word, that I may live: and let me not be ashamed of my hope. PS 130:5 I wait for the LORD, my soul doth wait, and in his word do I hope. PS 147:11 The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy.
