In chapter 19 of "To kill a Mockingird" some of the symbols are the Bible which Tom has to take an oath on.  This is to symbolize justice and this is ironic because Tom isn't getting any justice.  Tom is also a symbol of innocence.  Even though he is being treated as a guilty man by the prosecuting attorney.
