Judge not, that ye be not judged

This morning the Wall Street Journal provides an interactive presentation about Bibles used at Presidential Inaugurations. The one shown here was used at Lincoln's First Inaugural in 1861. Fighting had already begun in what would become the American Civil War. That day, when Lincoln swore the oath, the Bible was opened at Matthew 7:1. This is the Bible that President-elect Obama intends to use next Tuesday.
