What does Deuteronomy 14:24 mean?

John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Deuteronomy 14:24

And if the way be too long for thee
The way from the place where any Israelite might live:

to carry it;
the tithe and the firstlings, it would be too expensive or too troublesome in any way that could be devised:

or if the place shall be too far from thee, which the Lord thy God
shall choose to set his name there;
which by the event appeared to be the city of Jerusalem, and this from some parts of the land of Canaan was very distant:

when the Lord thy God hath blessed thee;
with a large increase of the fruits of the earth, and of flocks and herds.
