    I have edited your question to remove the parts which are irrelevant to the core question. They may make for additional useful questions, however, they just aren't meaningful to answering this question. – Flimzy Aug 5 '14 at 9:40

    Google search "What tribe is King David from?" and literally the first result is "Tribe of Judah" ..... just sayin :) – LCIII Aug 5 '14 at 11:52
  • You were concerned about the East Gate as well. In the desert, the tribes of Judah, Issachar, and Zebulon camped to the East. Nearest the gate was Judah " 3 - East side ... standard ... Judah They would have been directly in front of the gate or entrance to the courtyard and the tabernacle (although at some distance)." – Bit Chaser Aug 16 '14 at 23:33

David is from the tribe of Judah. This can be found in Matthew 1. See verses 2-6a:

Abraham was the father of Isaac,

Isaac the father of Jacob,

Jacob the father of Judah and his brothers,

Judah the father of Perez and Zerah, whose mother was Tamar,

Perez the father of Hezron,

Hezron the father of Ram,

Ram the father of Amminadab,

Amminadab the father of Nahshon,

Nahshon the father of Salmon,

Salmon the father of Boaz, whose mother was Rahab,

Boaz the father of Obed, whose mother was Ruth,

Obed the father of Jesse,

and Jesse the father of King David.
