    I've never heard it. Perhaps you mean "gob smack"?

    Some Bible-thumper actually said that. If you click here, you can find the above mentioned phrase highlighted.

    Incidentally, Godsmack is an American rock band.
    Sully Erna stated in a 1999 interview that "I was making fun of somebody who had a cold sore on his lip and the next day I had one myself and somebody said, It looks like God just smacked you in the face for making fun."
    (Source: Wikipedia)

    I hope this helps.

    Re: God-smack ????

    I guess a God-smacking is less severe than a God-smiting.

    Don't worry about learning this "word." You'll never need it again.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
