Description
Engraving by Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld (March 26, 1794 - May 24, 1872)

Take him down to the spring called Gihon. There Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet should pour olive oil on him and make him king over Israel. Blow the trumpet and shout, 'Long live King Solomon!' Then come back up here with him. He will sit on my throne and rule in my place, because he is the one I have chosen to be the ruler over Israel and Judah." Benaiah son of Jehoiada answered the king, "Amen! This is what the Lord, the God of my master, has declared! The Lord has always helped you, our king. May he also help Solomon and make King Solomon's throne an even greater throne than yours." So Zadok the priest, Nathan the prophet, and Benaiah son of Jehoiada left with the Kerethites and Pelethites. They put Solomon on King David's mule and took him to the spring called Gihon. Zadok the priest took the container of olive oil from the Holy Tent and poured the oil on Solomon's head to show he was the king. Then they blew the trumpet, and all the people shouted, "Long live King Solomon!" All the people followed Solomon into the city. Playing flutes and shouting for joy, they made so much noise the ground shook.
