Abstract The Greek text of Deut. xxviii 22 preserves the earliest reference in a Jewish context to “fever and chills”, a pair that repeatedly surfaces in later incantations. This provided both a scriptural justification for some Greek curses and contributed to the “magical Wirkungsgeschichte” of Deuteronomy itself.
