Along the Military Road to back toBrumgoff Bridge

This part of the walk can be done in two stages.
First starting off from Brumgoff Bridge 
going half way and then completing the walk
from the other direction from the Military road. 
Unfortunately there is little to indicate the half way point. An attractive alternative is to walk the full distance to the Military road and continue on it back to the Brumgoff Bridge – downhill all the way.

Although not part of the Wicklow Way the scenery is so interesting I have included it.

Book of Judges
6,7 and 8

The period of the Judges spans the time from the death of Joshua to the reign of Saul the first king of Israel. The events are recorded in the book of Judges and the beginning of the first book of Samuel. The book of Judges records cyclical events of rebellion, judgement, repentance and deliverance. The Israelites would depart from the worship of God and worship other gods. In response God would raise up a nation to persecute them. The Israelites would repent and cry out to God for deliverance and God would provide a champion ( a judge) who would both deliver them and rule them.
An often repeated sentence (for emphases ) in the book is “In those days Israel had no king; everyone did as he saw fit”. This sentence is not a comparison with the period when kings ruled Israel. God was Israel's King and this fact was not recognised during the period of the Judges just as it was not recognised later in the period of the kings. (see1 Samuel 8: 7). In other words the events described in the book indicate the incomplete nature of the Kingdom of God in the nation of Israel.
