In the Players handbook list of spells, one of the level 5 Paladin spells is "Destructive Smite", however I can't find the spell description? Where can I find the description of the spell?

Destructive Smite is most likely renamed to Destructive Wave, as it is also a 5th level spell, and has the same spell description as the spell Destructive Smite which was in the Alpha playtest.

Thanks for confirming that there was an earlier version with the same description but different name. The Destructive Wave spell in the PH doesn't seem very much like a Paladin "smite" spell, so I wasn't sure. (It is otherwise not on any spell list except the Tempest cleric domain.) –  mattdm Sep 7 '14 at 23:21

Destructive Smite has been renamed into Destructive Wave as far as I can tell.

This post should have the answer you are looking for. I cannot speak for reliability.
