  Koehler-Baumgartner III has 'mein Kleiner (Finger od penis)' , and so many Commentaries. Parallelism with moten also suggests it is hardly a finger.

    Òåìà: Qa+aNiY in 1Kings 12:10
    I’ve heard it suggested in a couple places that the word Qa+aNiY in 1 Kings 12:10, normally translated as “little finger”, might be a euphemism for genitalia (perhaps like ReGeL in Is. 6:2).  But I don’t seem to have any reference works which touch on that; it’s not listed as an option in BDB, but that’s hardly conclusive.  Does anyone here have any opinions or thoughts (or better yet, solid information) on the topic?
