Does "as I commanded" actually mean "in the detailed way which I have 
commanded", and not just something like "because I have commanded this"? 
I would need to look at some specific examples to see if the Hebrew 
actually demands a reference to some other commandment rather than a 
self-reference in the commandment. Perhaps this way we can get back to 
Hebrew rather than theology!
