 14:24
 14:25
14:24 If the journey is too great for you, and God your Lord has blessed you so that the place that God your Lord has chosen as a site dedicated to His name is too far for you to carry it there,
Vechi-yirbeh mimecha haderech ki lo tuchal seto ki-yirchak mimcha hamakom asher yivchar Adonay Eloheycha lasum shmo sham ki yevarechecha Adonay Eloheycha.
14:25 you may redeem [the tithe] for silver. The silver in your hand must consist of coinage, which you can bring to the place that God your Lord will choose.
Venatatah bakasef vetsarta hakesef beyadecha vehalachta el-hamakom asher yivchar Adonay Eloheycha bo.



Commentary:

must consist of coinage
  (cf. Sifri; Bava Metzia 54a; Yad, Maaser Sheni 4:9). Or, 'take the silver wrapped in your hand' (Sifri; Bava Metzia 42a).
