I'd have to find you specific references but don't have time right now. But in my research the "evil eye" was not always bad, but used to scare away evil spirits. So the "evil eye": probably is misleading. With so much emphasis on the "eye of Horus" though, that immediately comes to mind as being connected though I don't know that directly.
The scriptura passages are too general to refer to the evil eye in pagan practice though, so I don't believe this is a specific reference to that artifact. If there is a general or specific connection to the eye of Horus or the eye at the top of the seeing eye pyramid, then it is considered the eye of Satan, epitomized as the height of knowledge and insight and wisdom, the ultimate "angel of light."
Of course, I believe the Eye of Horus predates the Exodus so its use as a cultic omen to rid off evil spirits, etc. is quite possible. I don't know anything else specifically, and you will likely find lots of academic speculation as to exactly what the relevant history is, so enjoy!
Just Google "evil eye" and follow the trails. My only casual knowledge is of the Greeks using it to ward off evil spirits and it got tagged the "evil eye" in relation to that, but the eye itself was not supposed to be evil.
