REQUIRE

re-kwir': "Require" meant originally "seek after," whence "ask," and so (as in modern English) "demand." All meanings are common in the King James Version (e.g. 1 Samuel 21:8 Ecclesiastes 3:15 Ezra 8:22 1 Corinthians 4:2), and the Revised Version (British and American) has made little change.
