".... the LORD will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you." (Exodus 12:23b)
Sadly, there are some theologians who believe that the destroyer was one of God's loyal angels (or even God Himself). This is not supported by Scripture as a whole nor by historical data. As one person noted:
"According to primitive notions, 'the destroyer' would mean the demons of disease and death. It is against such evils as these that the sprinkled blood gives protection."
Piercy, William Coleman (Editor) The Illustrated Bible Dictionary (New York: E. P. Dutton and Company, 1908), p. 761
