Then Zadok the priest took the horn of oil that he had taken from the Tent, and anointed Solomon. They blew the shofar and all the people said, “Long live King Solomon!” Bible see other translations

“the tent.” The “tent” is not the Tabernacle, which was at Gibeon, but it was the tent that David had set up in Jerusalem for the ark of the covenant (see commentary on 1 Chron. 16:1).

“shofar.” The ram’s horn trumpet, not the metal trumpet.
