31 And Bethsabee bowing with her face to the earth worshipped the king, saying: May my lord David live for ever. 32 King David also said: Call me Sadoc the priest, and Nathan the prophet, and Banaias the son of Joiada. And when they were come in before the king, 33 He said to them: Take with you the servants of your lord, and set my son Solomon upon my mule: and bring him to Gihon. 34 And let Sadoc the priest, and Nathan the prophet anoint him there king over Israel: and you shall sound the trumpet, and shall say: God save king Solomon. 35 And you shall come up after him, and he shall come, and shall sit upon my throne, and he shall reign in my stead: and I will appoint him to be ruler over Israel, and over Juda.
36 And Banaias the son of Joiada answered the king, saying: Amen: so say the Lord the God of my lord the king. 37 As the Lord hath been with my lord the king, so be he with Solomon, and make his throne higher than the throne of my lord king David. 38 So Sadoc the priest, and Nathan the prophet went down, and Banaias the son of Joiada, and the Cerethi, and Phelethi: and they set Solomon upon the mule of king David, and brought him to Gihon. 39 And Sadoc the priest took a horn of oil out of the tabernacle, and anointed Solomon: and they sounded the trumpet, and all the people said: God save king Solomon. 40 And all the multitude went up after him, and the people played with pipes, and rejoiced with a great joy, and the earth rang with the noise of their cry.
