configure bash to echo out the command entered?

is there any way to configure bash to echo out the command entered?

I'm using an app to interface with bash when I send commands in and bash send back its reponse to the command, but i'd like basj to send back the command entered as part of its response ..

-v & -x options give way too much info

I don't know if it can do that (very well could do), but anyway if you can alter the program (i.e. a script), you could just make it read the last line from .bash_history which has the last commands.
