The Return along the road to the Bridge over the Ow

This section of the walk was done in one stage but it could be done in stages if wished. Again like the previous walk the return was done along the road which was mostly downhill. The decision to start in the reverse order ( starting from the bridge over the Ow river) was based upon this fact of the easier downhill return. There is a good car-park at the bridge.

This return route to the bridge over the Ow is not part of the Wicklow Way but the scenery is so interesting I have included it.

Downhill (200 metres) most of the way, on surfaced roads.

David and Solomon
The Last Kings
of an
United Kingdom of Israel

The next king of Israel was David, who previously was an army officer of Saul. He is described as a man after God's own heart. He wrote many hymns (which are called  psalms - see the book of Psalms). He was a great champion defeating the surrounding enemies of the Israelites and extending Israel's borders. However David in his later years as king committed adultery and murder.
David's son Solomon (renowned for his God given wisdom) was the greatest of the Israelite kings. Under his reign the kingdom experienced it's greatest peace and glory. Nevertheless during his reign (with high taxes and his worship of the gods of his many foreign wives) the seeds of the destruction of the united kingdom were sown. Their story is told in 1st and 2nd  Samuel, 1st Kings, 1st and 2nd  Chronicles 
In the early reign of David, God made a promise to David regarding his heir. This promise was partly fulfilled in his son Solomon but the wider fulfilment was in the coming Champion. The coming CHAMPION  KING would be of the family of David and would occupy an eternal throne. (see 2nd  Samuel 7: 4 to 17)
