Hello Yigal:

Thanks for your comments.

Nir had suggested lake hula for the vicinity of חצר עינן . But lake hula
seems far distant from this northern border.

ביום ההוא כרת יהוה את אברם ברית לאמר לזרעך נתתי את הארץ הזאת מנהר מצרים עד
הנהר הגדל נהר פרת

בראשית טו יח
Even baalbek seems a good bit south of the euphrates river.
