Tom Sawyer got a Bible by showing Mr. Walters that he had almost all of the tickets, and Mr. Walters gave him a Bible because he wanted to look good in front of Mr. Thatcher. He traded stuff he'd been given to the kids for their tickets so he could cheat and gets his bible.

Mark Twain draws "A curtain of courtesy" and doesn't actually tell us if Tom gets the Bible or not, but it is implied that Judge Thatcher found out that Tom cheated to win his prize at the end of the chapter.
