Let us try another method of differentiation. A voluntary action can be commanded. If someone says `Tremble` and I tremble I am not obeying him - even if it tremble because he said it in a terrible voice. To play it as obedience would be a kind of sophisticated joke (characteristic of the Marx Brothers) which might be called playing `language-games wrong`.
