Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet will anoint him king over Israel there. Then blow the shofar and say, ‘Long live King Solomon!’ Bible other translations

“will anoint him.” The verb is singular, giving precedence to Zadok who will do that actual anointing. Translations that say “they are” to anoint him lose that clarity.

“shofar.” The ram’s horn trumpet, not the metal trumpet. The shofar would clearly be heard by Adonijah and his supporters.
