[b-greek] KJV Mt. 2:4

In Mt. 2:4, whereas the NASB, NIV, etc., translate EPUQAVETO as "he asked,"
or "inquired," I notice the KJV has "demanded," which produces quite a
different sense to me. Is "demanded," a less apt translation or is this
only a matter of changes in the English language over a span of 400 years?
Would "demand" have meant "ask" to 17th-century readers? Many thanks.
