Vocabulary of the Greek NT

φρίσσω, which is ";specially used of awe of a mysterious Divine power"; (Hort ad Jas. 2:19), is well illustrated by P Leid Viv. 12 (iii/iv A.D.) ( = II. p. 17) τὸ μέγα ὄνομα λέγειν · Αωθ, ὃν (l. ) πᾶς θεὸς προσκύνει, καὶ π [ ]ς δαίμων φρείσσει (l. φρίσσει). Cf. Herodas VI. 44 τοὺς γὰρ τελώνας πᾶσα νῦν θύρη φρίσσει, ";for every door now-a-days shudders at the tax-gatherers"; (Knox)

The verbal φρικτός is common in magical papyri, e.g. P Leid Wv. 10 (ii/iii A.D.) (= II. p. 95) ὀνόματι ἁγείῳ (ἁγίῳ) . . φοβερῷ καὶ φρικτῷ, P Lond 121.314 (iii/A.D.) (=1. p. 94) ὀνεί [ρ ]ους τε φρικτούς, ib. 46.80 (iv/A.D.) (= I. p. 68) κατὰ τῶν φρικτῶν ὀνομάτων, so.176f, and ib 123.10 (iv/v A.D.) ( = I. p. 121) κατὰ τῆς φρικτῆς ἀνάγκης. See also Deissmann BS p. 288, and the magic P Osl I. 1.9 (iv/A.D.) τόν σου υἱὸν φροῖξον, ";shudder at thine own son"; with the editor’s note (p. 36) that ";φρίσσειν (cf. τὰ φρικτὰ ὀνόματα) is constantly used of the effect that the sorcerer wishes to bring about by means of his magic."; The verb occurs in two poems on the death of a dog, Preisigke 6754.5, .20 (iii/B.C.) (= Archiv vi. P.453 f.). See also the reff. in Preuschen-Bauer, Wörterb.s.v.

For the subst. φρίξ, cf. the Gnostic charm P Oxy VI. 924.5 (iv/A.D.) συντηρήσῃς Ἀρίας (l. Ἀρίαν) ἀπὸ τοῦ ἐπιημερινοῦ (l. τῆς ἐφημερινῆς) φρικός, ";protect Aria from ague by day,"; and.4f., and Syll .890 (=.3 1239).19 (ii/A.D.) where a tomb is entrusted to the care of the καταχθόνιοι θεοί with the prayer that whoever violates it shall be submitted to various ills καὶ φρείκῃ [κ ]α [ ] πυρετῷ κτλ.
