The Bene Azgad returned with Zerub babel from the captivity (Ezra 2:12 Nehemiah 7:17 ). Their number is variously given as 1,222 (Ezra 2:12 ), 2,322 (Nehemiah 7:17 ), 1,322 (I Esd. 5:13, where the form given to the name is "Astad"). Subsequently 110 more came up with Ezra (Ezra 8:12 I Esd. 8:38, "Astath"). Azgad signed the covenant with Nehemiah ( Nehemiah 10:16 ).
