Mishnah Meilah 6:5: One who deposits money with a money changer, if they are wrapped up [in a bundle] he [the money changer] may not use them. Therefore if he spent it [and then he finds out that it belongs to the Temple] he has violated meilah. If they are loose he [the money changer] may use them, therefore if he spent them he has not violated meilah. [If he deposited the money] with private owner, in either case he [the private owner] may not use them. Therefore if he spent [the money], he [the private owner] violated meilah. A storekeeper is considered a private owner, says Rabbi Meir. Rabbi Yehudah says, he is considered a money changer.

המפקיד מעות אצל השלחני אם צרורין לא ישתמש בהם. לפיכך אם הוציא מעל. אם מותרים ישתמש בהן. לפיכך אם הוציא לא מעל. אצל בעל הבית בין כך ובין כך לא ישתמש בהם. לפיכך אם הוציא מעל. החנוני כבעל הבית דברי רבי מאיר. רבי יהודה אומר כשלחני:

Mishnah Meilah 6:6: If a peruta belonging to the Temple fell into one's pouch or if he said that a peruta that is in this pouch belongs to the Temple [thus mixing it with his private coins], as soon as he takes out the first one [peruta], he has violated meilah, so says Rabbi Akiva. The Sages say he has not violated meilah until he has spent all the coins in the pouch. Rabbi Akiva [however] agrees with the Sages in the case where he said one peruta that is in this pouch belongs to the Temple, that he can spend the coins until he has spent the entire contents of the pouch [before committing meilah].

פרוטה של הקדש שנפלה לתוך הכיס. או שאמר פרוטה בכיס זה הקדש. כיון שהוציא את הראשונה מעל. דברי רבי עקיבא. וחכמים אומרים עד שיוציא את כל הכיס. מודה רבי עקיבא באומר פרוטה מן הכיס זה הקדש. שהוא מוציא והולך עד שיוציא את כל הכיס:
