On January 20, 1965, Lyndon Johnson took the oath of office for his first full term as President, having served as President after the assassination of President Kennedy.
For the first time, a President’s wife held the Bible for the swearing-in ceremony; a Bible given to him from his mother.
President Johnson, in his speech, called for the nation to unite toward a common goal. . .
He concluded with a quote from 2 Chronicles 1:10:
“Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people, for who can judge this thy people, that is so great?”
