What is Abaddon and Apollyon?

They had as king over them the angel of the Abyss, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek, Apollyon.  Revelation 9:11
Abaddon means four things:
1.      ruin
2.      destruction
3.      the place of destruction
4.      the name of the angel-prince of the infernal regions, the minister of death and the author of havoc on the earth
Apollyon means "Destroyer"
1.      the angel of the bottomless pit, the Destroyer
This is the only place these words appear.  Together they mean a destructive force from hell.  That destructive force from hell (Abaddon and Apollyon) will swarm Jerusalem and destroy it.
