Question in parashas va’eschanan

The pasuk (devarim 5:28) says:

וְאַתָּ֗ה פֹּה֮ עֲמֹ֣ד עִמָּדִי֒ וַאֲדַבְּרָ֣ה אֵלֶ֗יךָ אֵ֧ת כׇּל־הַמִּצְוָ֛ה וְהַחֻקִּ֥ים וְהַמִּשְׁפָּטִ֖ים אֲשֶׁ֣ר תְּלַמְּדֵ֑ם וְעָשׂ֣וּ בָאָ֔רֶץ אֲשֶׁ֧ר אָנֹכִ֛י נֹתֵ֥ן לָהֶ֖ם לְרִשְׁתָּֽהּ׃

“But you remain here with Me, and I will give you the whole commandment, the laws and the rules, etc.”

Anyone have anything on why הַמִּצְוָ֛ה here is singular? I couldn’t find any commentary addressing this. I vaguely remember an idea that this refers to a specific mitzvah as being preeminent or something like that.
