WHY WONT THIS THING TURN OVER

1998 Honda Passport

Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Honda Passport 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 167000 miles

OK SO THIS PROBLEM IS GETTING WORSE. BEFORE IT WAS JUST A NOW AND THEN NOW IT IS ALMOST ALL THE TIME IF IT SITS FOR A FEW HOURS. IF YOU TURN THE KEY YOU CAN HEAR THE STARTER THROW OUT AND SMACK THE FLYWHEEL, BUT IT DOES NOTHING MORE. NO CRANKING, NO GRINDING, NOTHING. YOU CAN GET THE CAR TO TURN OVER IF YOU KEEP CRANKING THE KEY 30-40 TIMES. ONCE IT DOES TURN OVER OR START EVERYTHING WILL WORK FINE. I HAVE REPLACED THE BATTERY, STARTER, AND CABLES BOTH. THERE ARE NO OTHER ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS WITH THIS CAR. I HAVE NOTICED IN THE PAST THAT IT SEEMED LIKE IT TOOK A LONGER TIME FOR THE ENGINE TO FIRE THAN I WAS USED TO BUT IT HAD ALWAYS STARTED.
IS IT SOME RELAY WHAT ELSE COULD IT BE?
