Each year the English language develops about a thousand new words. Over the course of a century, that amounts to 100,000 new words. Since the King James Version of the Bible was written in the early 1600s, perhaps a half a million new English words have been developed.

A small percentage of those new words are tremendously powerful. Here are some examples:
