Why does the Torah repeat here the command that Hashem already issued above in Pasuk 11?


Rashi and Rashbam: In fact, this is synonymous with Hashem's command in Pasuk 11. 1


Ramban (on Pasuk 13) 2 : Moshe now assumed that, from now on, he together with Aharon would prophesy and would perform all the miracles before Yisrael and before Pharaoh, and that Aharon would be the spokesman. But Hashem said to him "Ani Hashem" - reminding him that it was to him alone that Hashem revealed His great Name, and that he alone was the Shali'ach who would issue Pharaoh with instructions. 3


And the Torah reverts to where it broke off to teach us the Yichus of the Tribe of Levi (Rashi).


This is a continuation of what the Ramban explained earlier (6:12:2:1).


Also refer to 6:28:1:2.
