Sorry if this is in the wrong place.  I wasn't sure of the best place to put it.

 

This article is not that interesting in and of itself but have a close look at the picture.

 

AN estranged couple’s nearly 25-year “marriage” has been declared invalid by the Family Court of WA partly because the woman was only 14 years old when at the time she wed in a refugee camp in a war-torn country.

The pair, referred to as Mr Kadar and Ms Gyuszi in the recently published Family Court decision, was in the process of getting divorced when questions arose about the legitimacy of their marriage. Mr Kadar then applied to the court to declare their marriage valid and a hearing took place earlier this year.

The court was told Ms Gyuszi was 14 and Mr Kadar 23 when they were wed in a refugee camp in an undisclosed country in 1989, six years before emigrating to Australia. Both had fled their original homeland as children, where civil war had broken out, to a refugee camp in another war-torn country.

After their marriage ceremony, which was performed by a clergyman of the Refugee Orthodox Church before witnesses, the pair lived together for 24 years and had five children, but separated in 2013.

 

Ooops.  Forgot the link: http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/court-rules-wa-couples-25year-marriage-was-invalid/news-story/fc1d9b0297fb2e0320de61a124c052ff?utm_source=emarsys&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Copy+of+PerthNow+PM+update+31%2F10%2F17

Definitely looks like the Darby translation.

I think you might be right, Simon.

2 And it came to pass, from the day that the ark abode in Kirjath-jearim, that the time was long; for it was twenty years. And all the house of Israel lamented after Jehovah. 
3 And Samuel spoke to all the house of Israel, saying, If ye return to Jehovah with all your heart, put away the strange gods and the Ashtoreths from among you, and apply your hearts unto Jehovah, and serve him only; and he will deliver you out of the hand of the Philistines. 
4 And the children of Israel put away the Baals and the Ashtoreths and served Jehovah only. 
 
12 And Samuel took a stone and set it between Mizpah and Shen, and called the name of it Eben-ezer, and said, Hitherto Jehovah has helped us. 
13 And the Philistines were subdued, and came no more into the borders of Israel; and the hand of Jehovah was against the Philistines all the days of Samuel
