AZGAD (ăz'găd, Heb. ‘azgādh, Gad is strong, or fate is hard). The ancestral head of a postexilic family (Ezra.2.12; Ezra.8.12; Neh.7.17; Neh.10.15).

AZGAD ăz’ găd (עַזְגָּ֔ד, Gad is strong). The head of a family that returned from the Exile. They returned in two contingents, one with Zerubbabel (Ezra 2:12; Neh 7:17; 1 Esd 5:13 RSV, ASV ASTAD KJV SADAS) the other with Ezra (Ezra 8:12). An Azgad appears as one of those who signed the covenant (Neh 10:15).

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

In the list of those who returned from Babylon with Zerubbabel are mentioned "the children of Azgad" (1,222, Ezr 2:12; 2,322, Ne 7:17). 110 males with their chief returned with Ezra (Ezr 8:12). Azgad was among the leaders who signed the Covenant after Nehemiah (Ne 10:15).
