Ve'avar Adonay lingof et-Mitsrayim vera'ah et-hadam al-hamashkof ve'al shtey hamezuzot ufasach Adonay al-hapetach velo yiten hamashchit lavo el-bateychem lingof.

Commentary:

force of destruction
  Mash'chith in Hebrew, literally 'the destroyer.' Targum Yonathan translates it, 'angels of destruction.' See 1 Samuel 13:17, 2 Samuel 24:16, Jeremiah 51:25.
