David's Father an "Ephrathite"

David's father, Yishai, was an Ephrathite, meaning from the district Ephrata in the province of Judea, not an Ephramite, meaning from the tribe of Ephraim.  Ephrata included Bethlehem in Judea, see  Michah 5:1; 5:2 "But you, O Bethlehem Eph'rathah, who are little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose origin is from of old, from ancient days."
