Consider what behaviors or actions you might see in a person who is trying to cleave unto the Lord. This question would not arise were it not for the renderings of the KJV. Thus it is really but one facet of the more general doctrine of the supposed infallibility of the KJV renderings, a tenet of KJV-only-ism. They were not claiming any kind of finality or irreformability to their product. Quite the reverse! They were trying to make good translations better, and trying to rise above partisanship. We thank God for the contribution that the KJV has made over the last three to four centuries remember that its path to acceptance was far from immediate, but was slow and rocky.
However, it is time to move on: we know much more about Hebrew and cognate languages now; we likewise know more about the Greek language through the multitudes of papyri from the Graeco-Roman world of the time. There is no reason at all to regard the KJV, or any translation, as the be-all and end-all.

But it makes little difference in the overall scheme of things, as there is one true God and apart from Him an endless host of false gods, including man as he deifies himself. Joshua is telling the Israelites there are only two possibilities - either you serve the Living God or you are an idolater. This is a truth that reverberates throughout Scripture; there are only two kinds of people in this world - those who are in Christ and those who are not.
There are sheep and goats, wheat and tares, elect and reprobate; call them what you like. But the fact remains you either serve the Living God or you are an idolater. I think it becomes fairly clear that the Euphrates is indicated especially after one reads "the flood" mentioned in previous verses of the same chapter of Joshua. Joshua "And Joshua said unto all the people, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Your fathers dwelt on the other side of the flood in old time, [even] Terah, the father of Abraham, and the father of Nachor: and they served other gods.
Jos "Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD. When read in context it appears that the flood Joshua spoke of was the flood of fire and brimstone which overthrew Somom and Gomorrah. The timing is right and these words spoken by Jesus add strength to this view: And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all. Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed [them] all.
Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.
Luke The other side of the flood is the time before the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah when men served idols and knew not God.

It is occasionally translated "floods" in the KJV Psa. But in each case such a rendering is a mistranslation. Even in Job it is a river in flood which sweeps things away.
