Then blow the trumpet and say, ‘Long live King Solomon!’35 You shall then come up after him, and he shall come and sit on my throne, for he shall be king in my place. And I have appointed him to be ruler over Israel and over Judah.”36 And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada answered the king, “Amen!

Then they blew the trumpet, and all the people said, “Long live King Solomon!”
