 16:1
 16:2
16:1 Safeguard the month of standing grain so that you will be able to keep the Passover to God your Lord, since it was in the month of standing grain that God your Lord brought you out of Egypt at night.
Shamor et-chodesh ha'Aviv ve'asita Pesach l'Adonay Eloheycha ki bechodesh ha'Aviv hotsi'acha Adonay Eloheycha miMitsrayim laylah.
16:2 In the place that God will choose to be dedicated to His name, you shall sacrifice the Passover offering to God your Lord [along with other] sheep and cattle.
Vezavachta Pesach l'Adonay Eloheycha tson uvakar bamakom asher yivechar Adonay leshaken shmo sham.



Commentary:

Safeguard
  Adjusting the lunar calendar so that Nissan remains in the spring (Rosh HaShanah 21a; Yad, Kiddush HaChodesh 1:1).

along with other sheep and cattle
  (Ramban). Or, 'sacrifice sheep as the Passover offering, along with the cattle' (Targum; Sifri; Rashi). The other animals are the special festival offering, known as the Chagigah. This consisted of a peace offering (Yad, Chagiga 1:1).
