Pounding the Black Asphalt

This section of the Wicklow Way (11)
can be done in one walk.
 There is good parking at either end of the walk.
Except for a small portion in the middle the walk is along paved roads. Rural life is seen up close, passing homes and farmsteads.
The sequence of the photos is from Sheilstown to Camgroe. As can be seen from the map there is an alternative return route for most of the journey 

This is a strenuous walk of approximately 3hours descending 120 metres and then ascending 120 metres with various ups and downs on the rolling hills. The return is along the same route just the reverse order. Unfortunately I have lost the high definition of Google Earth and therefore the values are approximate.

The Prophets  - Heralds of the coming King

During the history of the Israelites, God raised up people to speak for him. Usually their message was a warning that the Israelites was breaking the covenant with their God and a call for repentance and reformation. Sometimes the message of a prophet was not only for the people of his day but also for future generations. Their message then would not only be oral but would also be in written form. The written message would not only included a prediction of coming judgement, such as the conquest of Israel by the Assyrians and the conquest of Judah by the Babylonians, but also a promise of future deliverance by God. These written messages form  many books of the Bible.

The prophets wrote about the coming CHAMPION KING and here is a sample of their predictions.

Isaiah 53 :8 to 12. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. By oppression and judgment he was taken away. And who can speak of his descendants? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was stricken.
 He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the LORD makes his life a guilt offering, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.
After the suffering of his soul, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities. Therefore I will give him a portion among the great, and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
