"Turn it into money," lit., "give it up for silver," sc., the produce of the tithe; "and bind the silver in thy hand," const. praegnans for "bind it in a purse and take it in thy hand...and give the silver for all that thy soul desireth, for oxen and small cattle, for wine and strong drink," to hold a joyous meal, to which the Levite was also to be invited (as in Deuteronomy 12:12, Deuteronomy 12:18, and Deuteronomy 12:19).

Deuteronomy 15:4 Parallel Commentaries

Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Save, etc. or, To the end that there be no poor among you. Houbigant follows this marginal reading, to which he joins the end of the third verse, considering it as explanatory of the law; as if he had said, `Thou shalt not exact the debt that is due from thy brother, but {thy hand shall release} him, for this reason, {that there may be no poor among you} through your severity.' He justly contends that the phrase {ephes kee}, can here only mean, `to the end that,' being equivalent to the French {afin que.}
