Turn the key and nothing?

Im in need of help. I have just bought a 97 jeep wrangler. I drove it for like 3 days. One day i started it drove down the road came home and turned it off. When i went back to start it... nothing. so far i have replaced the starter, checked the starter relay, checked ignition switch, nuetral safety. Finally i just unplugged from the fuse box and bi passed to the silinoid. sorry for the spelling. Im not very mechanically apt so i need help.

go get a load test on the battery. autozone or similar place will do it for free. and charge your battery if needed. check your cables and grounds really well first..

Sounds like the ignition switch up in the column if its starting when you by pass to the solenoid, fairly simple repair, if you can get a $10.00 12v test light it makes it that much easier.
